Mcafee 8 0 not updating
My domain consist of all Window servers (2003, 2008, R2, 2012) and workstations (XP and Win7).
VSE 8.8 Patch 6 (and later) prevent this issue from occurring, and contain a code change that could resolve the issue (or greatly reduce the likelihood of it occurring) in affected machines.
Some customers have reported successfully avoiding reoccurrences of symptoms by modifying the Agent Update task.
When configuring the content that the Agent Update task should retrieve from the repository (whether a Mc Afee or internal repository), deselect the Engine content option.
Obviously one or two have agent issues, but, for the majority seem to be communicating properly.
They register that tags have been applied for install, but after the install completes it does not reflect the installed software on the server side.
I have updated our MA to 4.8 and that is going fine.I've done some searching online and see that other people have been suffereing from this same problem (link), but the only "solution" that has been repeated over and over was to uninstall/reinstall, which like I said before, is not working for some of my machines. My apologies for the extremely late reply: I'm using 126.96.36.1990 currently for all of my machines.For the majority of those machines, they have a check-in time of (today's date).Please note: in the answer that I provide below, it ignores the part about the install/uninstall tag "trick" not working.This is because I had to perform very specific actions to get it to work (monitoring the agent closely to ensure it didn't throw out error messages or fail to communicate entirely after a short while).
