Update a Subscribed List

Updates of subscribed lists content are performed manually or according to a schedule, depending on whether the content is retrieved from the Skyhigh Security server that is provided for this purpose or from another server.

To list content that is retrieved from the Skyhigh Security server, you must perform updates manually. Each time you perform a manual update, all McAfee-supplied lists are updated together.

The content of McAfee-supplied lists is also updated each time you create a new list of this kind.

For list content that is retrieved from a server other than the Skyhigh Security server, updates are performed according to a schedule. Each subscribed list has a schedule of its own. You can set up and modify the schedule when configuring the settings for the list content.

When administering subscribed lists on a node in a Central Management configuration, updates are shared by all other nodes within the update group.

The update group is configured in the section This Node is a Member of the Following Groups of the Central Management settings.

The content of McAfee-supplied lists is also updated each time you create a new list.
