We run MacAfee VirusScan Enterprise 7.1 and configure our clients to point to our shared directory on the network to get their dat files. I would like to know where in the computer does it save the AutoUpdate Respositry List so that I can extract the information and then just import it in everytime a new computer is rolled out.....any ideas?

Do you have ePO? it is part of the AVD package.

The files that contain the repository information are...
C:\Program Files\Network Associates\Common Framework\Data\ServerSiteList.xml
C:\Program Files\Network Associates\Common Framework\Data\SiteList.xml
C:\Program Files\Network Associates\Common Framework\Data\SiteMapList.xml

You could try copying them to another PC and see if it works.

ePO is well worth using.

What were your problems? (try version 3.0.1 or 2.5)

Maybe they are ePO files?

I located them by searching for 'files contain text' in Windows. I knew that I had a repository called 'ZYX' so I looked for that in _all_ files.

Maybe you could try that too.  I also searched my registry but didn't find anything.

I'll also check my home PC later to see what I can find

- I found where NA keeps that info and all I do now is import it into my repository, but I didnt know if there was a way to double click on a registry entry that would import all that info...like I was able to do in 4.5.1

Glad you found it :-)

If the info is in a file maybe you coud just copy the file to the required PC's?  If it's inthe registry you could always export the relevant key(s) to a .reg file then just copy and double click that on the target PC's

If you need more help maybe you could say where the info is (location and format) and then I should be able to help.
