If you install unmanaged clients from the product disc, you cannot immediately use third-party distribution tools to distribute LiveUpdate content or policy updates to them. As a security measure, by default these client computers do not trust or process the content that third-party distribution tools deliver to them.
To successfully use third-party distribution tools to deliver updates, you must first create a Windows registry key on each of the unmanaged clients. The key lets you use the inbox folder on unmanaged clients to distribute LiveUpdate content and policy updates by using third-party distribution tools.
Once you create the registry key, you can use a third-party distribution tool to copy content or policy updates to this folder. The Symantec Endpoint Protection client software then trusts and processes the updates.
