If deploying VirusScan on managed sytems you should be using ePolicy Orchestrator to deploy and manage VirusScan. You are strongly advised to either set policies with ePolicy Orchestrator or to create your own configured version of VirusScan to deploy without ePO which has more restrictive settings than the standard configured version.
Using VirusScan on servers has a range of configuration issues, be it a Domain Controller, Exchange, SQL or just a file server.
For more information on these topics see the following links.
- McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 8.8 with patch 4 for use with ePO (unconfigured)
- McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 8.8 with patch 6 for use with ePO (unconfigured)
- McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 8.7i with patch 5 for use with ePO (unconfigured) - NOTE: the default update site for Enterprise 8.7i DAT files is HTTP http://update.nai.com/products/commonupdater
- Please note: in the Enterprise update log/dialog you may notice a message which says 'Updates were not applied because packages were not in the repository VSCANCELU1000.EXTRADAT1000'. This is an expected message and NOT an error. The DAT updating will still have completed successfully.
