Security exchange not updating
After upgrading, follow the steps in the Workaround section to clear out old rulesets.
Workaround Clear out the rules and restart IIS (for Exchange 2000/2003) or restart the Microsoft Exchange Transport service (for Exchange 2007/2010/2013). Stop the following Windows Services: Symantec Mail Security for Microsoft Exchange Symantec Mail Security Utility Service 2.

Symantec EP and Backup System Recovery 2010 are also installed on this machine and both seem to update fine on their own, just seems to be SMSMSE.

SMSMSE 6.0.8 and earlier or running SMSMSE 6.0.9 and later on 32-bit system SMSMSE shares the definitions downloaded by SAV/SEP client. Configure SMSMSE not to download virus definitions using this article: Configuring Live Update when Symantec Mail Security for Microsoft Exchange and Symantec Anti Virus Corporate Edition or Symantec Endpoint Protection are installed together Note: The optional Rapid Release updates for SMSMSE require FTP access to the internet Live Update source servers.
