Forefront definitions not updating wsus

It will look something like this: I do hope this post helps you better understand the flow of SCEP definition updates.

Please post any comments or questions and I’ll respond when I can.

You could have quite a few Antimalware policies, but I’ll be working with the default policy in my screenshots today.

At this point, those who are familiar with these settings may be ready to skip ahead. You’ve got a few options here, so let’s discuss what they actually do.

However, my Windows 8.1 machines will not get the client updates even though they are automatically approved for all machines.

For my first blog, I want to introduce you to updating System Center Endpoint Protection (SCEP) definition updates. Escalation Engineer, for helping me with this blog.

Believe it or not, SCEP cannot use CM as an update source location for definitions, which is why this setting does not modify the Fall Back Order registry key.

If we select this option, we must also define the UNC paths in the definition updates section of the antimalware policy. This option modifies both the Fallback Order key and the Definition Update File Share Sources key.

When the SCEP client definitions become too far out of date, or if the end user clicks Update in the UI, the SCEP client looks for a Fall Back Order registry key in HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Microsoft Antimalware\Signature Updates .

The SCEP client will check each update source in order until it locates a source that has available definitions.

This value represents (in minutes) the amount of time the SCEP client will ‘sleep’ and wait for CM to bestow signatures upon it.
