select them all in the client view, right click, run command on clients, update content

Are these clients managed or unmanaged?

If they are managed then you need to define a policy in the SEPM console. The policy will state if the clients update their definitions from a locally hosted server or the symantec server out on the Internet.

Wolfcamel, does update content mean update virus definitions?  I wasn't sure about that.

Ivanoviola, the computers are managed and the policy is configured for Use the default Symantec LiveUpdate server.  What I'm trying to accomplish is to update all the managed computers manually just to make sure they all have the latest updates.  Sounds like Wolf is telling me "select them all in the client view, right click, run command on clients, update content".  Will that work for Managed computers?
yep - update content will do it.
and
only managed computers show up in this console
