Could try the SEP distribution tool. Useful tool created by symantec but not full supported so can't use the results to raise a case with them. But will tell you the overall status of the GUPs on the SEPM.

I downloaded the BETA for 12.1 and it has a .bat file and a jar file. No readme instructions. Is there a tutorial or something with those not familiar with the tool?

Unzip the file to a place of your choosing. Than copy the sepm_monitor.jar and SepmMonitorTool.bat into the Tools folder under the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager folder.

Double-click the SepmMonitorTool.bat file to open the monitor and view the status of your GUPs.

You should also read thru the Enable_Apache_Logs.txt file as well.

Can be checked via the local client logs is SEP 12. Open client click on View Logs under client management click view logs system logs should see if client is updating directly from GUP.
