mcafee clients not updating-61

Typically, I have to do 3 to 4 cycles of all of the above steps to get the machines to react properly.

I don't know why this occurs the way it does..just does.

Antivirus has become the most essential need of every computer system.

The virus and malware attacks are increasing every day, which is very harmful for the health of your PC.

In some cases, IT staff may wish to speed up that process for troubleshooting or other reasons.

This can be accomplished either from the client or from the server.

In the Task to Schedule: area, select Mc Afee Agent for the product.

By default, the Mc Afee agent checks with the server for new policies or changes to existing policies once every 60 minutes.

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. I haven't found a full answer to the question I have asked, but for anyone who might be struggling with the same issue: A temporary work around is to harass the e PO server until it complies with the request.

If you have more then 3 to 5 machines being affected by this issue, I would recommend doing this in very small batches, as it can affect network performance significantly.

I have tried to tag these systems with Uninstall/Reinstalls to fix the issue, and it worked on two machines, but there is still at least 20 machines that are not registering properly!
