Symantec endpoint protection antivirus definitions not updating
Visit Stack Exchange I'm keeping tabs on a remote sever that is running Symantec Anti Virus Corporate Server 10.1.7.7001.
About a month ago, the Virus Definition File version date stopped updating and hasn't updated since - 3/26/2012 rev.

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.
