For me it seems to be perfect firewall or proxy issue. If sepm was able to connect to

it would show the current date on the latest update available column.... 

Check your proxy and firewall.

whats the result of this doucment

So its clearly your firewall blocking the update check with your network team.

Failed as suggested.

2) done the clean up as article and still same screen shown.err1.jpg

Do you use proxy?

  • Login to SEPM
  • Click on Admin TAB
  • Click on Servers
  • Right click Server
  • Edit Server Properties and click on Proxy server TAB if yes , is it configured?

try this document to re-publish the catalog file

Hi Rafeeq,

I dont have any issue with proxy or firewall as i able to download the latest definition. My issue is my console not displaying the latest date. Thats all. If you check back my 1st screen shot of Live updates download, you can see that its up-to-date.

There is a redX on the status screen too. Can you check if this process is running?

Endpoint Status pie chart on the Home screen of Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager console 12.1 does not appear.

Hi Ganesh,

Can you check if your SEM5 DB in the database has been limited to particular size or unrestricted db growth.?
