The most recent database download attempt at x.x.x.x failedThe Websense Master Database must be up-to-date for
most effective Internet filtering.
I started getting this message on April 23. The same day Websense came out with a notice saying the Websense threat database on april 23rd causes the WES scheduler to fail. I don't use WES but maybe its the same type of thing is happening with the Websense security 7.0.1
Here's how I got it fixed. The april 23rd WES problem had nothing to do with my issue.
Logged into MYWEBSENSE. Click on View Patches and my version 7.0.1 . The patch has the title "Master Database Load Problems" ..... Follow the readme file and everything works fine now.
Master Database load problems
You can refer to the KB below to fix this issue:
Seeing the same thing here - DB version is showing as 03291. A manual attempt to update shows the file updating, then applying, then after a long while it says that the update failed.
Plenty of disk space, plenty of RAM, no issues accessing the internet (and indeed the file is actually downloaded), seems to be some failure in the process that applies the download.
We had the WES issue and the resolution there was to delete the current master database and then let the scheduler download an entire fresh copy of the database. This would probably work for web filter too, if I knew which files to delete...
