The virus definitions date is displayed in Status|Virus Definitions date.
Also check carefully that there are no typos in the server name, path, or port.Once the SEP 12.1 client is directed toward a source that is hosting materials that it needs, the client will successfully update. Ah they forgot the upgrade the IS components you might conclude. Lessons learned here are that SCOM was completely happy with the bad situation … So there’s the solution for you but it’s kind of “omen” like that it happened to three Windows 2003 virtual machines (both x64 and x86). It’s easy to find out what is not right via a simple commandlet Get-VMIntegration Service We’ll that’s obvious. I uninstalled the IS components, rebooted the VM, reinstalled the IS components … While the VM is rebooting you can take a peak at the integration services status with Get-VMIntegration Service That’s it, all is well again and backups run just fine.Alternately, do not use Live Update and instead configure the managed SEP client to receive its contents from its SEPM or via GUP.
This error appears only when Live Update is run manually. I keep getting the same error when running Live Update on NIS 2011 “Microdefs error – Live Update had an error updating the virus definitions” I have completed the following troubleshooting steps.Ran Live Update immediately following a reboot – same error Uninstalled NIS2011, reboot, reinstalled NIS2011, run Live Update – same error Although everything updated except the AV definitions Validated that Live Update is running at 5.1.2 Attached a screen shot of product version after Live Update NIS 2011 seems to be running OK, no other errors and it doesn't complain at all.
