Forefront not updating automatically

forefront not updating automatically-48

Nothing in the update logs that I can see to shed any light onto the cause.

Clients connect to the WSUS server to check for applicable updates and then request the latest approved definition updates.After some searching I found it was an issue with HTTPS and the solution was to disable HTTPS or enable TLS.So I enabled TLS on the Server 2008 R2 WSUS server and that fixed the issue with my 8.1 clients not getting updates except for Forefront Endpoint Protection 2010.I am just wondering what else I can check or change to make sure my Windows 8.1 clients get the Forefront client updates as they should??I am wondering if I manually install the 4.1 client update if it will take the client updates after that.In addition to manual approval, you can also set an automatic approval rule for definition updates and Endpoint Protection updates.

This will configure WSUS to automatically approve Endpoint Protection definition updates downloaded by WSUS.

Although using Configuration Manager software updates is the recommended method to keep definitions up to date, you can also configure WSUS as a method to allow users to manually initiate definition updated.

Use the following procedures to configure WSUS as a definition update source.

This is done by configuring automatic deployment rules.

Before you begin to create automatic deployment rules, make sure that you have configured Configuration Manager software updates.
