Symantec endpoint definitions not updating

Posted by / 31-Oct-2019 19:12

I know these corporate editions never stop giving updates like defender.

The Clients appear in the client list and I can send instructions such as "Disable Network Threat Protection" to the client from the server and it works.

) are looking for them somewhere else, hence there never being any new updates!?

The reason I wanted you to try live update on the client computer is so we can identify if the client is being managed or not. Since you can send instructions to the clients, obviously the clients are being managed.

It was working fine since long, but I noticed that SEPM stopped updating Antivirus And Antispyware Protection virus definitions and they were almost 1 week old, rest of definitions including Proactive Threat Protection and Network Threat Protection were up to date.

So there was something wrong with the virus definition update engine.

The folder "\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Symantec\Live Update\Downloads" has lots of folders, but "\Program Files\Symantec\Endpoint Protection Manager\Inetpub\content" is empty except for an empty "Content Info.txt" file.
