Groupshield not updating
We have Group Shield 5.2 on Exchange 2000 and 5.0 on Exchange 5.5, as well as Mc Afee command line scanner running on an SMTP gateway box.
Around the middle of April these all stopped being able to update their DAT files and I've been unable to resolve it so far.
IP reputation leverages on Mc Afee Global Threat Intelligence (GTI) to prevent damage and data theft by blocking the email messages at the gateway based on the source IP address of the last email server. We have recently upgraded (Dec 2012) our Exchange 2010 (SP2, ru2) from GS7.02 to MSME 7.6.besides some known postgress errors that were addressed we are still up to a MSME with error 2045: Details: Weird thing here is that when I start looking for solutions online I keep ending up on the GS 7.0.x product Nowadays, monitoring is a mixture of tools, systems, and codes—making it a very complex process.

Our e PO v3.5 and VS8.0i clients are receiving and updating their DATs just fine (in fact the Exchange 2000 server has VS7 on it and it has the latest DAT to).
I have a call logged with Mc Afee so should get a response soon but it just seems too big of a coincidence to me that 3 systems that have been updating fine for months should suddenly start to fail within a few days of each other.
