Symantec endpoint protection management server not updating
I have looked at the update on the machines themselves. I need to get it so that my bandwidth doesn't spike when these two connect and/or update.This seems to have worked itself out of the most part.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.
Under your symantec endpoint protection manager, open up policies, click liveupdate.
Symantec also recommends that you upgrade the entire network to the current version of SEP rather than manage multiple versions.
Before you upgrade, you must manually stop the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager service on every management server in your site.
See my article on ensuring the Live Updates are going through: would initially download an update manually and that should get the definitions up-to-date, then monitor to see if they stay up-to-date. gid=savce Symantec Endpoint Protection: Live Update Troubleshooting Flowchart Live Update and content troubleshooting for the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager
