Updating client hardware definitions

However, my server shows green and is showing that it is updating daily while my other client computers all show red and have not updated since they were installed.

There is an update task in the task list which was a default task installed during installation which reads "Antivirus database and application module update task (version 6)".

Windows will automatically download and install updates once a day for you.

If automatic updates aren't working there might be an issue with your PC: You can also force a download of the latest daily update.

If protection tools other than Kaspersky Endpoint Security 8.0 (for example, Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Mac or Kaspersky Anti Virus 6.0 for Windows Servers MP4) are used in your network, they need separate update tasks.

Each product update task has a specific schedule and settings, including: Updates are retrieved from the Administration Server by the Network Agents.

Please keep in mind that if both parent and child groups have tasks of the same type, the computers of the child group will run both tasks.

You have the option to schedule the clients to restart during a time that is convenient for users.

When I go into the Administration Kit on the server, I have all of my computers including my server in the main "Groups" folder.

I do not have any computer listed in the Administration Servers (and have wondered if this might be my problem).

You can use Auto Upgrade to install a new version of Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1 on all the clients in a group.

Use it to upgrade multiple computers in a network to a new version of Symantec Endpoint Protection with a minimum of user intervention.

I have a Windows 2003 server, and all XP client computers.
