Client to Server communication debugger
My enterprise has over 20,000 hosts and at least two thirds of them are behind group update providers. Those group update providers are themselves behind satellite connections and many clients underneath them behind private secure networks or DMZs. We use location awareness to assign a LiveUpdate policy configured with the corresponding GUP. Debugging communication issues between client to SEPM or client to GUPs has been a nightware. It's ridiculous and time consuming to change the value of the registry key at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection\SMC\smc_debuglog_on & create a new key at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection\SMC\SYLINK\SyLink with the location of the log file only to then have to analyze the log for the break in communication. I am aware of the sylinkmonitor tool but that only parses the log. I would like to see a dedicated tool for debugging client to server or client to GUP communication.
