Automatic DAT update not working on 1 DMZ server - Manual Update does

Hi there.


I have one of our Windows 2008R2 (64bit) server in the DMZ (in a Workgroup not in an AD Domain) behaving strangely. The automatic DAT update via ePO does not work. Operations has to login to the server each day and do a manual update (Rightclick TrayIcon - Update Security). That works every time but the automatic does not.


Server has been setup with out standard template (about a dozen are using the same template and they work fine).


Version Info:


McAfee Agent:

McAfee Secuirty for Lotus Domino: 7.5.1246.0

McAfee VirusScan Enterprise: 8.8.0 (


I get the following in the Windows Event Log:


Level: Warning

Source: McLogEvent

EventID: 258

General: The update failed; see event log.


No other events in the Windows Event Log.


What event log is the error referring to?


Has anyone had a similar behavior?
