SEPM Definitions

We have a server running 2003 standard which isn't connected to the internet. This server has Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager installed.

A couple of times per week we connect the server to the internet and download the latest definitions.

This has worked OK for a while.

Since 07th Feb, the AV definitions aren't updating. The Proactive Threat Protection and the Network Threat Protection are updating just fine.

I've tried manually updating the definitions using the JZB file from Symantec, same result.
Can anyone help?

Your version is SEP 11 MR4 which was released in January 2009.

The latest version is 11.0.6 MP2 (11.0.6100.645).

You need to download the new version of SEP; remove the old version; and install the new version.

This issue doesn't really have anything to do with the version of SEP being used. This is most likely a LiveUpdate issue. Start by doing these 2 things.

1. Verify content on the SEPM. Login to the console and go to Admin > Servers > Local Site > Show LiveUpdate Downloads. Check the 'Antivirus and anitspyware definitions Win## 11.0 MicroDefsB.CurDefs' entries. They're most likely out of date and this is why your SEP clients aren't updating.

2. Clean and Update the LiveUpdate catalog on the SEPM. Open a command prompt and cd to <path-to-where-SEPM-is-installed>\bin. Run lucatalog -cleanup then lucatalog -update. Go back to the console (same location as step 1) and 'Download LiveUpdate Content'.

Report back with any errors.

My experience tells me the version of SEP does have impact for liveupdate.

The old version might have bugs to be fixed and the best practice is to install with the latest version of SEP.

And in the end an upgrade may be required, but I don't believe it will be a SEP upgrade. It will be LiveUpdate instead. The version of LU that comes with SEP MR4 is 3.2. RU6MP2 does come with LU 3.3. But because they're separate products we don't have to upgrade all of SEP to get LU 3.3.

I tried the two suggestions and the same thing has happened. We still have only AV definitions up to 07/02

Do I upgrade LU or SEP? Or both?

The LU version of SEPM is 3.3.

What is the version of the definitions currently on the SEPM (from step 1 in my earlier post)? If they're out of date, give this a try next.

1. Open File Explorer and browse to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Symantec\LiveUpdate\Downloads.
2. Delete all of the ZIP files.
3. Browse to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Symantec Shared\SymcData\sesmvirdef32.
4. Check for any TMP files or folders and delete them if present.
5. Browse to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Symantec Shared\SymcData\sesmvirdef64.
6. Repeat step 4.
7. Stop and start the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SemSrv) service.
8. Login to the console and go to Admin > Servers > Local Site.
9. Click 'Download LiveUpdate Content' under Tasks.

Bingo!

That has done it. All the definitions have now downloaded and we are up to date!
Thanks for your help!
