SEP Definition Updates on VDIs
I have a query related to content updates on VDIs. We have not yet rolled out SEP client on the VDIs but are in the process of testing the installation, creating exceptions, and configuring live update setting etc on a few VDIs. We need to run around 10K VDI clients from the golden image and we need all of them to be updated. Our clients are running as non-persistent guest virtual machines.
Moreover, we are alreay following the best practices specified at: http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=TECH180229
The concern is that we do not have an image refresh policy at the moment. We may not update the golden image for months. Also, it is really cumbersome to recreate 10K clients everytime the golden image is updated.
So, if we do not update the golden image for say 2 months, how will we manage the content updates. Will it require to download the content updates from the day the golden image was created all the way to the current date whenever the VDI gets connected. Is that how it works?
We also have a Shared Insight Cache in place. But can we consider that as a replacement for latest updates, as it marks files as safe that are already considered clean?
Request you all to please assist me with this.
We are running SEPM 12.1.1101.401 RU1 MP1.
Thanks in advance.
