When admins export a package from the Remote SEPM console, it makes a package with very old definitions. There's a manual way to update the package after the fact with newer definitions but this is a lot of work and bandwidth when you have 300 admins exporting packages.  The actual defs that come with exported packages are inside the database so there's no way to export packages with new defs. When deploying packages with older defs for those migrating from SAV10 or on new machines you can bring down your WAN link as all the new clients come online and download the entire def package at once.

Proposal is to add an option in the export packages wizard to incorperate latest definitions with the package so you don't have to manually pull the defs from the server, rename them and then overwrite the defs in the package. Automate it and make it easier for everyone!
