Fep 2016 definitions not updating

08-Jan-2020 14:01

Both of my VMs were not previously managed and it took until a reboot for them to actually report into the console as managed.

Looking at the figures below, first the machine was listed as “unmanaged,” then it was “managed” with Windows 8.1, followed by a failed push install on Windows 10, and finally the system was managed with Windows 10.

You will need to remove any group policies that may have been configured to disable Windows Defender on domain machines.

I created a separate Windows 10 SCEP policy and deployed it against my collection of Windows 10 machines, whereupon I applied a SCEP 2012 standard desktop policy, modified to include Outlook 2010/2013 exclusions.

Below are the steps you would take set up automatic deployments of FEP definition updates, and ensure they are being deployed peer-to-peer rather than each client connecting over the network to your Config Mgr. In the Assets and Compliance workspace in SCCM, expand Endpoint Protection and click Antimalware Policies. Enable Automatic publication of software updates a. You may also want to select the “Publish All Existing Non-Published Software Updates” checkbox too.

Double-click the Default Antimalware Policy (or create a new policy and assign it to a collection) and select the “Definition Updates” option and configure it to allow clients to download “Updates distributed from WSUS.” To prevent clients from going to the Configuration Manager server, uncheck the “Updates distributed from Configuration Manager.” Create an Automatic Deployment Rule 2. Choose you package source location, evaluation schedule, etc. If you would rather not publish all software updates, you can simply select the Software Deployment Package Explorer tab (in the same perspective), right-click on the update you want to publish and select “Publish as adaptiva content” in the dropdown menu.

To address the issue you may try these troubleshooting steps : 1] Switch from Microsoft Update to using Windows Update.

Windows 10 takes a different approach and is now able to be directly managed by SCCM without replacing it. Even if you tell SCCM to install the SCEP client when you launch SCEP.exe, on a Windows 10 machine it will launch Defender.

I’ve finally got everything to play nicely in my lab so I’m sharing a few screenshots.

Please check which Fix It applies to your version of Windows. To manually download the latest definition updates for Windows Defender: When the definition file runs, a file extraction dialog box appears.

After the file extraction dialog box closes, verify that the Windows Defender definitions have been updated.

So you may or may not have heard that Defender is the default anti-virus client on Windows 10.
