This issue has been solved. See solution.

Is there any way to push the monthly definition updates to the unmanaged SEP v11 client which has got no internet connection ?

you can download the .exe ( intelligent updater) and using thrid party tool or the scripts you can push the definition to unmanaged client.

Also you can use Internal Liveupdate administrator to update these unmanaged client.

Is it Supported to Configure Unmanaged SEP Clients to Update from LiveUpdate Administrator 2.x rather than the SEPM?

Thanks for the response Pete,

However, I'm rolling out servers to several (~50) customers site DMZ which do not have the internet option so in this case is there any file that I can just drag n drop to the SEP directory or to double click to update the Antivirus ?

I'm thinking to send the customer web link to each of the .EXE file so they can download it to the USB and then install the update manually every month.

yeah if you are not interested in internal LUA then you can use the .exe which can be double clicked to update the client definition of unmanaged client.

yeah it looks like good idea for you to pass on the weblink to the end user managing the desktop for .exe and ask them to update.

you can download the .exe from the following link

:-), i would rather say every day. even these are in DMZ. If the end user uses USB drive or any other source to connect to machine and if it is affected and it does not have updated definition, there is risk involved. Ofocurse you are the best to judge based on your environment, however update on regular basis is always recommended.

Yes that is make sense Pete,

the customer site administrator will be a very busy person to do this every morning when they are doing the coffee walk :-)
