Configure a site to download content updates
The site that includes the default management server must store the content updates that you want to distribute to clients.
You can also configure how often the site receives LiveUpdate content.
Configuring a site to download content updates
If replication is used, only one site needs to be configured to download update files. Replication automatically updates the other database. As a best practice, however, you should not replicate product updates between sites. These updates can be quite large and one exists for every language that you select. If you select to download product updates with LiveUpdate to Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager, the updates automatically appear in the Installation Packages pane. You can then update clients with auto-upgrade. If you use this approach for version control, you should not select automatic product upgrades in the LiveUpdate Settings Policy.
If you do not want to use LiveUpdate, you can use the Intelligent Updater to download content manually to the default management server. You can then distribute content with third-party management tools.
