Hi ,

Good Day to All

We are using SEP 12.1 RU1 MP 1 on Win 2k8 Ent R2 Server in our environment, having 5000 clients across the Globe.

The Current issue is I have pulled Risk Distribution by Computer over a period of one month  on 20/12/2012 and one client is reported 25000 virus found and on 21/12/2012 I formatted the same system.

After one week (26/12/2012) again I pulled the same report for the last one month and it is showing 50000 virus  and the last virus reported on 19/12/2012.

I am quite surprising that why the count is miss matching, can anyone suggest ?

Thanks in Advance

I think either the SEPM is not reportin properly or else SEP is not reporting properly. You can try recommunicating with the SEPM. Also manually clear the report and monitor it. Also try:

Hi All,

  • If managed clients are in a different time zone from the management server, and you use the Set specific dates filter option, you may see unexpected results The accuracy of the data and the time on both the client and the management server may be affected.

Since Our client and the SEPM are in different time zone, it is a expected behavior  look in to the following link for details
