Symantec endpoint definitions not updating client

Rated 4.30/5 based on 908 customer reviews

Where exactly does the Scan Engine get the updates from?When I log into the Symantec Scan Engine 5.1 web page and select Home on the left side of the page the "Date of Virus Definitions" is May of 2008. Edition 10.1.7.7000) definition is dated Feb 11, 2010.On a subnet over a WAN link, you would have a single client retrieving definitions from the SEPM.This is the same whether you have ten clients over the remote WAN link or two hundred. I have Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager installed on a Windows Server 2008 R2 machine and I've attempted to push the SEP client out to Windows 7 workstations on my domain.Remote installation of the client is successful, but the clients are, from that moment forward, unable to connect to the SEP Management software.This document explains how to update Symantec Endpoint Protection definitions by running Live Update.TEM managed clients should receive updates automatically from the server.

If the Symantec Scan Engine can use the i32 update, (I can look into 16-bit application issue later ) than what I need to do is fix why the Scan Engine is not updating it's definitions.

In an environment where a GUP is configured, clients designated to use GUPs will reach out on port 2967/TCP to see if there is a definition update available.

If the GUP does not have a definition it will reach out to its defined SEP Manager and download the correct update.

(I am getting an "ntvdm encountered a hard error" when I try to).

(The i32 executable does not produce this error only the x86 executable.)Is Symantec Anti Virus Scan Engine for Windows the same thing as the Symantec Scan Engine?
