    Default Av updates are not running every two hours

    I'm running NE 5.0.6 on rhel5 i386 and things are working fine except the other day a user got a virus. In troubleshooting why it got thru, I found that the AV update is not happening at all. zmcontrol shows all the services running, and I have cycled the AV service. I still must manually run the AV update.

    What runs this within zimbra? Is it supposed to be a cron job? I have searched forums but there doesn't seem to be alot on what actually runs this service every two hours.

    OK so it's running and not updating. I have shut down and restarted zimbra without it improving the situation.

    I believe freshclam should also be running and defined in freshclam.conf
    Code:
    # Number of database checks per day.
    # Default: 12 (every two hours)
    #Checks 24
    so it may be worth checking your Log Files - Zimbra :: Wiki for any error messages.
