Environment

Issue



The Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM) is keeping too many revision-related files in the "Inetpub\content" folder.  Version 11.0.2000 (MR2) or later is set to keep fewer folders, but after the upgrade, ten folders are still present.

 


Error



Symptoms

Content is consuming too much disk space in the SEPM system and did not change after an upgrade to version 11.0.2000 (MR2) or later.

 


Solution



In Symantec Endpoint Protection version 11.0.2000 (MR2) or later, and in SEP12.1, the number of content revisions stored is configurable through the console.

Note:

  • If you select Simple as an installation parameter, then the stored content revisions will be set to 3.
  • If you select Advanced as an installation parameter, then the number of content revisions retained by default is directly related to the number of clients associated with the SEPM:
    • Fewer than 500: 3 revisions
    • Between 500 and 1000: 10 revisions
    • More than 1000: 30 revisions

     

If the SEPM was upgraded, the previously configured settings will be preserved (For versions prior to 11.0.2000 {MR2.EN_US} the default was 10).


To configure the number of content revisions retained in SEPM follow the below steps:

  1. In the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager console, click Admin > Servers > Local Site.
  2. Right-click Local Site and select Edit Properties.
  3. Click LiveUpdate.
  4. Under "Disk Space Management for Downloads", select the number of content revisions to be retained.
