You can enable 'run missed task' in the product update task.
Thanks l I did, but... when my client machines (wireless machines) come in to the network at 8am, will they get the DAT update automatically?
That is the purpose of the 'Run missed task' tickbox.
The task will run on startup with 'x' minutes delay where you choose the value of 'x'.
The client machines have to receive the updated task information first while connected during the day of course.
I am not too sure why mcafee only release one update per day but even if you do update 2 or 8am you will only get yesterdays updates. You could just create extra tasks to run auto update on start up along with run if missed on your other tasks?
