WSUS clients do not install approved updates from WSUS.
The Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager is able to download current definitions to clients.
The WSUS client computers are configured correctly to connect to WSUS and appear on the WSUS Administration console. The WSUS server is completely functional in every other respect.
WSUS and the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager both utilize a virtual directory called "Content." If WSUS and Symantec are both installed onto the same default Web site using Port 80, only the last one installed will be able to serve updates to clients.
Choose one of the following methods to resolve this problem.
Move the WSUS content directory to a new location by using the Wsusutil utility.
To move the WSUS Content directory, follow these steps:
Move WSUS to port 8530 by using the Wsusutil utility. This option will cause IIS to use the alternate port, but all of the files will remain in place and will still be used. Note that you may need to reconfigure the WSUS client’s Group Policy setting(s) for the new port.
To move WSUS to port 8530, follow these steps:
Move Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager to an alternate port.
For more information, refer to the Symantec documentation for the supported alternate port number and procedures.
