Easiest way is to right click the VirusScan icon and choose Update Security

The first couple of lines will show

Starting update session.
Checking update packages from repository ePO Server name

That will show you.....

But if you need to know every machine, let me know and we'll have to write a query to show you

Cheers

Are you talking about the Virus scan console 8.7 i
when i click on update  , and open up the log , i could see only the database library name , its SQL db,
unable to findout the server name .
 the problem is that this single machine's DAT version is different, currently we haave the 6287, its showing very old DAT 5277 something .... SOi tried to click on update now, its not contacting the librarry , get failed, so that i want to find out which server its contacting !!! Please share some ideas .

OK, on the machine in question, do the following

Open a Command Prompt,
cd \
cd program files
cd mcafee
cd common framework
cmdagent /s

This will open up the ePO Agent and show you what the agent is doing in the background as well as the ePO server

OK, you obviously can't see it in your config.....

Right click your VirusScan Icon on your desktop and choose Update Now....

You will get an image (like the one I've attached) and you will be able to see your ePO server

cheers

OK, I've seen your issue now....

Our ePO Server is called VM-SECURITY.....normally the ePO Database is called ePO_SERVERNAME so it's quite easy to identify it.

Why don't you just redeploy the ePO Agent from a server to the machine in question ?

Or uninstall the ePO Agent from the command line using frminst.exe /forceuninstall
