You might also want to modify the Virus Scan User Interface properties on the policies tab for your site to disable the default autoupdate task schedule so that only the e Policy schedule applies.I use the "enable global updating" option in e Policy.I need to set and autoupdate daily task to run at am every morning. Repository update you can't really miss when creating the job.Client DAT update there's a schedule tab when you go into properties (it defaults to the Task tab).
Next, edit the task and click settings, uncheck the Inherit box and select the updates you want e Policy to update, as you can see you can have it just do the DAT or both the DAT and the engine and the e Policy agent as well to name just a few.
With this enabled, the entire process is automatic.
Once the e Policy server is updated, the distributed repositories get their updates.
Our setting vary per domain but it generally starts around 6am and repeats hourly, we do a DAT pull task every 25 minutes.
Are you referring to the Auto Update task that appears in the Virus Scan Console at the PC itself?
