After upgrading your Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM) to 14.3 RU1 (14.3.3348) or newer, Symantec Endpoint Protection(SEP) clients that are still on older build than 14.3RU1 report that a component is disabled. "There is one problem. URL Reputation Protection is disabled. Click Fix"
On the SEPM you see the SEP client listed in the disable client list, which shows URL Enabled status as "Component is Malfunctioning"
On the SEP cleint UI you can see "There is one problem. URL Reputation Protection is disabled. Click Fix"
SEPM upgraded to 14.3 RU1 and above, SEP clients version lower than 14.3 RU1.
This is an expected behavior of the SEP clients that are at a lower version than14.3 RU1. The URL Reputation Protection feature is introduced in 14.3 RU1 and above SEP versions.
We recommend upgrading the SEP client to the same version as the SEPM and enable the feature in the Intrusion Prevention policy
