Running LUAll.exe on a fully updated Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM) results in the download and application of 64 bit Virus definitions

Why does SEPM continue to download the same 64-bit definitions repeatedly?

To reproduce this issue:
  1. Run luall.exe and follow the prompts to check for and download the latest definitions on a SEPM running a 32 bit Windows operating system
  2. Note that the LiveUpdate session was successfull and applied the latest definitions for both 32 and 64 bit platforms.
  3. After LiveUpdate has finished, re-run luall.exe and note that 64 bit Antivirus definitions are downloaded again.


This problem is fixed in Maintenance Patch 2 for MR4 of Symantec Endpoint Protection 11. You can apply this patch over Symantec Endpoint Protection 11 MR4 or SEP 11 MR4 MP1.
