Symantec endpoint not updating virus definitions
See my article on ensuring the Live Updates are going through: would initially download an update manually and that should get the definitions up-to-date, then monitor to see if they stay up-to-date. gid=savce Symantec Endpoint Protection: Live Update Troubleshooting Flowchart Live Update and content troubleshooting for the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager page=content&id=TECH105924&locale=en_US I hope that would help. Sudeep Clients can be told where to get the updates from (a server on your netwoek or to use liveupdate).Running Live Update (the first option below) is usually the easiest and most effective, but other options are available.Using one method of updating does not preclude the other.I have a Symantec Corporate Edition 10.01 since 2006 and the definitions stopped updating the first week of July 2013.I know these corporate editions never stop giving updates like defender.On the same computer, you can choose to schedule Live Update automatic updates, and also manually use Live Update or run Intelligent Updater whenever you wish to update your virus definitions.On this page: (10.5 through 10.7.x) is available from IUware (requires Indiana University Network ID).
If this command results in either a network time-out or a failure to resolve the address, communication is being blocked between your network and Symantec servers.But the virus definitions are not getting updated in the end point server and the clients and not getting the update from the endpoint server.Clients are collecting to internet to get the update.I uninstalled SEPM and Live Update from the server, deleted all the files from the C: drive and reinstalled the appllication again.After the install, I updated a workstation with the new file from the server and it updated itself with the latest virus definitions from today.
