As offline update packages are version and build specific, be sure to verify this information prior to building the package.
Note: I repeat, this will work only with ( starting ) 2012 products, for older versions use the second ( old ) method.
You must have an active licensed product in order to generate and apply offline updates.
Though update packages are version and build specific you always have the option of reverting back to a previous update version if you choose.
Versions 184.108.40.206 and higher of Mc Afee Web Gateway offer support for offline updates which allow the administrator to create, download, and apply full update packages (vs.
incremental updates) that can be applied manually with the use of portable media.
