Disabling LiveUpdate in Symantec AntiVirus before migration

If LiveUpdate runs on client computers during migration, conflicts may occur. Therefore, you must turn off LiveUpdate on client computers during migration.

See Migrating from Symantec Client Security or Symantec AntiVirus.

To disable LiveUpdate in Symantec AntiVirus

  1. In the Symantec System Center, right-click a server group.

  2. Click All Tasks > Symantec AntiVirus > Virus Definition Manager.

  3. In the Virus Definition Manager dialog box, check Update only the primary server of this server group, and then click Configure.

  4. In the Configure Primary Server Updates dialog box, uncheck Schedule for Automatic Updates, and then click OK.

  5. In the Virus Definition Manager dialog box, uncheck the following selections:

    • Update virus definitions from parent server

    • Schedule client for automatic updates using LiveUpdate

    • Enable continuous LiveUpdate

  6. Check Do not allow client to manually launch LiveUpdate, and then click OK.

  7. Repeat this procedure for all server groups if you have more than one.
