    This post refers exclusively  to Symantec's IT Management Suite. This is an endpoint management product, not an endpoint protection product.

    After performing the upgrade via the SIM,  I still see the notification at the top of the Symantec™ Management Console that there is an update available. 

    When looking at the help > about the version reporting back is: 8.1.4528.

    Is this correct?
