"Latest Manager Virus Definitions" on the SEPM Homepage are incorrect after replication

The home page on the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM) version 12.1 incorrectly displays the wrong definition version to the other replication sites, creating a false sense of security when definitions could be outdated on one or more sites.

Customer reported that one of their SEPM servers reported up to date virus definitions on the home page for the site, but clients continued to receive older virus definitions from the site/manager.


The "Latest Manager Virus Definition" data field is replicated


This issue has been fixed in Symantec Endpoint Protection 12 Release Update 1 (RU1) Maintenance Patch 1 (MP1).  For information on how to obtain the latest build of Symantec Endpoint Protection, read TECH 103088: Obtaining an upgrade or update for Symantec Endpoint Protection or Symantec Network Access Control.
