Issue/Introduction

After installing Symantec Protection Engine (SPE) 8.1 and running LiveUpdate, only AntiVirus definitions show as updated. Insight definition dates show as NA.

Excerpt from report.xml:

<DefinitionDateTimeVersion>
        <AntiVirus DefinitonDateTime="Mon Oct 12 01:00:00 2020" version="20201012.009"/>

Cause

Insight definitions are packaged with the Antivirus definitions in SPE 8.1.

Environment

SPE 8.1

Resolution

Insight definitions are packaged with the Antivirus definitions in SPE 8.1. This is an intended change. The date listed for AntiVirus definitions is also for Insight definitions. The version for Insight definitions should be NA.
