Do GUP clients report status to GUP or SEPM?

Created: 19 Nov 2012 • Updated: 21 Nov 2012 | 3 comments

Just wondering if, when GUPs are configured, whether the clients report their definitions / system status to GUPs or directly back to the SEPM? Any help is greatly appreciated!

GUP is not interested in SEP clients virus definitions version or their status at all - everything is reported to SEPM, Client will get the information about the available definitions from SEPM as well - and then if need request it from GUP.

GUP is only work as a distribution point and forward the definition to clients as per heartbeat.

Client are geting policy/report directly from SEPM Server.
