This issue has been solved. See solution.

Does anyone have any recomendations for LU frequency? I am at the default of 4 hours. I am wondering if anyone bumps that up or uses continuous LU?

Four hours is too frequent.

Either make it 12 hours or 1 day.

OK I will go to 12 hours. Thanks!

I use 4 hours for my SEPM to check Symantec's LU.  Symantec releases anywhere from 2-4 certified definitions per day, so with my SEPM checking every 4 hours, I can ensure my clients are up to date.  I've gotten burned in the past even being 1 day behind with definitions, so I prefer it this way.
