Managed Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) clients do not update virus definitions.
These clients are configured to receive their updates from their Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM).

One possible cause is that old or corrupted virus definitions present on the SEPM prevent the SEPM's ability to update the SEP clients with new virus definitions.
Hi Guys Help, Help I am currently facing the problem whereby,i had upgraded my SEPM from RU2 to RU3.
But when i go to show live updates downoloads it shows that the downloads are for RU2. And at the same time my clients seem to communicate with SEPM as i can run command to restart a pc from SEPM and it works but clients dont to get updates(Latest Definitions) from SEPM itself,how do i resolve this?
