How to manually update virus definition files on SEP v12 64-bit clients
I am in need of a solution that will allow standard users to be able to manually update the virus definition files on their unmanaged SEP, version 12, 64-bit client PC. We have many users in our organization who use computers that are NOT connected to any network and are used strictly as local workstations with local, non-administrator, login accounts. These users use to be able manually update their SAV unmanaged client with the .xdb file, but I don't think that is an option for SEP, v12 64-bit.
I thought I found a promising article on the web, http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=TECH104779&locale=en_US, but this really looks too convoluted for a standard user without admin privileges to have to do just to update virus definition files. Since the local user has no admin privileges, they are unable to download the regular .exe file to update the definitions because policies configured on the image are set such that certain .exe files can only be run by an admin and when they attempt to do so, they are hit with the login credential box for the admin's login credentials.
I am hoping that there is a similar way with SEP to manually update the virus definition files on clients like we used with SAV, which was to download the .xdb file and burn it to a CD, then log onto the stand alone machine and copy the .xdb file into the C:\ProgramData\Symantec\Symantec Antivirus Corporate Edition\7.5. After about 3-5 minutes, the virus definition files were updated.
Hoping that someone can help with an easy solution to this. In the mean time, I will keep looking.
Thanks in advance,
