    Hello mrfusion,

     

    Basically if you "net stop fsma" which unloads f-secure services

    then "net start fsma" which will start services back and F-Secure Update Agent should check database updates.

     

    If you meant how to poll F-Secure Policy Manager Server from command line there is a fsmautil for that

    Which can be found from F-Secure/common/fsmautil.exe where you have to use variable "poll"

     

    fsmautil poll

    Hello,

    If the network functionality has completely broken down, it is possible to download a file called "fsdbupdate9.exe" somewhere else and transfer it on USB stick to the affected computer. That program can be run from the command line and it will update the F-Secure malware recognition databases.

     

    The method is highly inefficient, as the file is about 200MB sized and should not be used in daily work, only in case of emergency.
