We added a delay of 24 hours, under the Applications and Threats Update Schedule> Threshold( hours).

This will delay the install of the content for 24  hours.

I had version 7.1.10 and saw no issues not sure why not. Since then I have been upgraded to 730 that came out recently , I have mine set to automatically update

This whole issue was pretty bad.  We had AD authentication issues at our main site for about 12 hours.  Stupid thing abou the entire issue is the notification process from PA.  We had gotten the notification about 729 being an issue but had no details on what the symptoms were.  It would have been so easy (and helpful) for PA to have included SOME/ANY DETAILS about the type of problems with the initial notification or a LINK TO FURTHER DETAILS.   It wasn't until we found a community thread indicating Microsoft AD authentication traffic was affected that we rolled back and life was good again.


Simple communication would have been so helpful.
