SEP Client continues to display "Virus and Spyware Protection defintions are out of date" banner

Created: 19 Oct 2012 | 3 comments

Running SEPM 12.1.1101.401 RUI MP1on Windows.

After successfully downloading current defnitions/content from the Symantec website to my SEPM, and then successfully downloading this definition package from the SEPM to my SEP client (confirmed defnitions download entry in the Client's virus and spyware system log), I continue to get the banner "Virus and Spyware Protection definitions are out of date" on my SEP client.

I verified I am downloading all definitions/content from the website to SEPM and then down to my SEP client.

Thanks.

2. Click Policies
3. Open Antivirus and Antispyware
4. Click on the Antivirus and Antispyware policy in use
5. Select Miscellaneous
6. Click on the Notifications tab
7. Select the box "Display a warning when definitions are outdated."
8. Change the option Warn after: to the desired number of days definitions to be out of date without warning.
9. Select OK

Reference: Symantec Endpoint Protection clients are displaying "Antivirus and Antispyware Protection definitions are out of date."

Endpoint Protection shows definitions out of date at 30 days even when configured to notify after more than 30 days
