Video Screencast Help


Created: 26 Apr 2012 | 6 comments

Our office recently upgraded from Symantec Antivirus 10.something to Endpoint 12.1. Had to do this because some machines run Windows 7 now.

We weren't getting updates at all, supposedly we had some DNS issue which our network consultant fixed.

I am just wondering if there is a way to tell when definitions last got updated?

If I open Endpoint it shows me three things.. two of them, Virus and Spyware Protection and Network Threat Protection, were updated Wed Apr 25, 2012.

Proactive Threat Protection was updated Apr 13.

I just want to know if that third one is correct or maybe it's not updating.

Incase, these clients are Managed clients, the clients should take the definitions from the SEPM.

However, You can verify from this link, if the clients are carrying the Latest definitions:

Hope that helps!!

Or you can setup the Content Distribution Monitor once you connect it to the the internet it gives you the latest versions available from symantec and your current SEPM version applied.

Please review ideas and vote there could be something useful :)

Thanks so much. I was only worried because I had been without updates for so long. Wanted to make sure the system was working as it should while it's fresh in their brains that the consultant just fixed.
