Symantec xdb not updating server

The server gets definitions updates using Live Update or an file, and then automatically distributes the definitions to each of its clients on the network.

Read the document How to use Live Update is a program that connects to a server, downloads the latest definitions, and applies the definitions to the computer on which it is running.

Before you begin: If you are using Norton Anti Virus Corporate Edition 7.x, some of these instructions will not work.

Consequently the older design of SEP database doesn’t meet today’s requirements.

Symantec have to find a solution to this issue urgently.

You can run Live Update from the Symantec System Center (SSC), or within Symantec Anti Virus.

Live Update can retrieve definitions files either from the Symantec server (which it does by default) or from an internal Web, FTP, or file server created with the Live Update Administration Utility.

Scheduling Live Update You can schedule Live Update to run periodically, either from the Virus Definition Manager within the SSC, or by clicking File and then Schedule Updates from within Symantec Anti Virus.

The Live Update Administration Utility On very large or widely distributed networks, it may be desirable to create an internal server and have clients use Live Update to retrieve updates from that server, rather than using the VDTM.TEM managed clients should receive updates automatically from the server.If a client is not receiving updates automatically, follow this process.If I run it again after a successful download, it will always say it's up to date.I don't think it is an issue of getting the virus definition. Well, first of all - this site is really not a substitute for the Symantec's techsupport.Restarting (stopping and then starting) the Symantec Anti Virus Server process can be used to manually initiate the update process if you do not want to wait.
