MSP RMM:  Managed Antivirus (Bitdefender) update – Jan 25 8am EST

We have a new Bitdefender engine that we wish to roll out to the Managed Antivirus service.  This update will download automatically on current installs of Bitdefender MAV if not set otherwise in the policy.   We’re planning to push this update around 8am EST on Wednesday, January 25.  The update can take up to 24 hours before being applied to the machine.

This update should not require a reboot.  If any issues are encountered during the upgrade that do request a reboot, the reboot status will be reported up to the RM dashboard.  Please watch the dashboard for machines reporting a reboot request.

Please see the following link for more detail on controlling MAV Bitdefender engine upgrades on weekends and evenings, as well as reboots:
