Symantec Endpoint and Bandwidth

I have two branch offices, Site to Site VPN. Since updating my security server version, I am using Symantec Endpoint Protection, my bandwidth is being sucked up. It seems like every day now I lose connectivity and/or get very low bandwidth. I look at my netflow info and see that the connection that is using it is the security server and the branch computers, one or multiple.
I have looked at Symantec and tried to set it so it didn't do this in the middle of the day. I have looked at the update on the machines themselves. I am not sure what to do next. I need to get it so that my bandwidth doesn't spike when these two connect and/or update.

Under your symantec endpoint protection manager, open up policies, click liveupdate. Open your policy that you have created and then click on schedule. here you can select how many times and when you want clients to look for updates.

I checked all of my policies. Everything is set accordingly but I still get a bog every day or so between my branch workstations and Symantec. I will notice that internet connectivity has spiked. When I look I see that it is Symantec and one of the branch computers. If I restart one or the other my internet connectivity goes back to normal. Any suggestions?

maybe setup a management server on each site ? you can have access to each server through the same  management console.

Not sure I understand what you mean by a management server. I have one dc/server at each location and that is it. They are small branches with 3-8 computers each.

you can setup symantec endpoint protection management server on your other sites.  that way, clients won't force update to the default to symantec's live servers or update to your main SEPM server

I am not sure if I can do that with my Symantec license, I assume but I will look into it. I guess it won't hurt to have that on the DC for each location, that is the only server I have there?

This seems to have worked itself out of the most part. I did notice that I had a couple machines that were not updated so I used the sylink drop on those and they seem to be ok now. If I continue to have an issue I will go with the multiple management server route. I will give partial points since all helped me but essentially I worked through it.

The problem seems to be more related to the version not having updated on their own. Running the sylink on them seems to have helped with the updates.
