SEP 12 clients some are not updated with current definitions.

Created: 30 Jan 2013 | 5 comments

Since I started to deploy SEP 12, I have noticed that some PC's are showing out of date for definitions. I do not even see a sylink.xml file. How can I make sure these PC's get the proper and current definitions?

Windows 7 64 Bit Clients and some Severs 2003 and 2008.

Can you confirm they're connecting to the SEPM?

You can replace the sylink using SEPM 12.1.2
