Any way to deploy SEP defintions using SCCM?
We are having one heck of a time dealing with the large number of GUPs in our environment. With the fact that servers are changed out frequently without information from other teams, with the fact that there are usually a number of servers that end up with not enough disk space for the defintions to be held, and the fact that the new SEP 12.1 java GUP Monitoring tool is SO much slower to use than the previous 11.x vbs GUP monitoring tool., and finally the number of locations we deal with to make the GUPs work with the 11.x clients we cannot use the new 12.1 liveupdate policies for the GUP designation by subnet.
WIth all the above issues what we are wondering is if there is any way to setup a definiton update deployment using SCCM? We already have designated SCCM servers that are fairly static. We also have SCCM servers in many sites we do not currently have configured SEPM locations and GUPs setup thus reducing the update load on the SEPM servers. We also are dealing with a DB issue that is not allowing us to liveupdate the SEPMs daily with defintiions and this would be eliminated until the DB issue is resolved.
It would be nice if Symantec had some kind of SCCM plugin to create a package based on the defintion released and then do a defintion deployment.
I am hopeful that once we get most of our environment to the 12.1 clients and upgraded then the GUPs by subnet liveupddate will be a GREAT benefit but I have been haunted by dealing with tons of GUps for years now.
Anways anyone with any suggestions for a newly updated to 12.1 ru 2 server infrastructure and about 54k clients still at 11.x to help ease our defintion update growing pains?
