Protection for SharePoint Servers

Issue/Introduction

The "SharePoint Server Farm Overview" page shows out of date information for Virus Definition although the Symantec Protection Engine (SPE) has the latest virus definition date, as shown in the SPE interface.

The virus definitions date does not update as the scan engine update even though the information is correct on the "List and Edit Registered Symantec Scan Engines" page.

 

 

Cause

Caused by SPSS not fetching the latest virus definition date from Symantec Protection Engine.

 

Resolution

The fix for this will be in Symantec Protection for SharePoint Servers 6.0.5.

Patch fixes for SPSS 6.0.3 and 6.0.4 are available from Technical Support, after validation of the issue.
