PA-220 antivirus db will not show via manual or dynamic updates.

Hi all,


I have setup a PA 220 at home and have all licenses showing as functional.


I manually installed the apps and threats DB successfully. (it is seen under dynamic updates)

I manually installed the antivirus DB successfully. (it is not seen under dynamic updates)


When i try to upload the anti virus DB again, it says it already exists.


i have tried a reload, still not functional.


any tips to get this functional ?

Maybe try checking and cleaning your hardisk ? The final step is to save your device state reset to factory default and again import it .

Thanks for the replay however the device was already reformatted as this was a new build from scratch after factory reset.


What i did (even though all licenses were showing valid) was reapplied them starting with the basic level of each feature and then applying the advanced version if that feature had it.


After that i manually downloaded a version from each service and installed it manually. After that everything seemed to start working.
