Basically if you "net stop fsma" which unloads f-secure services
then "net start fsma" which will start services back and F-Secure Update Agent should check database updates.
If you meant how to poll F-Secure Policy Manager Server from command line there is a fsmautil for that
Which can be found from F-Secure/common/fsmautil.exe where you have to use variable "poll"
> there is a command line to force the database update in Client Security?
If the network functionality has completely broken down, it is possible to download a file called "fsdbupdate9.exe" somewhere else and transfer it on USB stick to the affected computer. That program can be run from the command line and it will update the F-Secure malware recognition databases.
The method is highly inefficient, as the file is about 200MB sized and should not be used in daily work, only in case of emergency.
