By default, all Symantec Endpoint Protection clients in a group receive the latest versions of all content and all product updates. If a client group gets updates from a management server, the clients receive only the updates that the server is configured to download. For example, you might configure the LiveUpdate Content Policy to permit all updates. If the management server is not configured to download all updates, the clients receive only what the server downloads.
If a group is configured to get updates from a LiveUpdate server, the group's clients receive all updates permitted in the LiveUpdate Content Policy. If the LiveUpdate Content Policy specifies a specific revision of content, the clients do not receive the latest available content.
You might want to specify that your clients receive a specific revision. With that configuration, you can test the latest version first before you distribute it to clients. While you test the latest version, your clients use the specified revision. After you test the version, you can modify the LiveUpdate Content Policy to specify that clients receive the latest version of the content.
Using specific revisions provides rollback functionality.
