Best practices for Backup Exec 2014 and LiveUpdate

Best practices include tips and recommendations to help you use Symantec Backup Exec 2014 and Symantec LiveUpdate effectively. For more information about LiveUpdate, see the Backup Exec 2014 Administrator's Guide.

The following best practices can help ensure the effective operation of LiveUpdate:

  • Run LiveUpdate before and after each Backup Exec installation or upgrade.

  • Schedule LiveUpdate to run when backup jobs are idle to optimize system performance.

  • On the Backup and Restore tab, right-click the remote computer and then select Update to update the Agent for Windows on remote computers with the same patches that were installed on the Backup Exec server. LiveUpdate does not update the Agent for Windows on remote computers. The Downloads section of the Symantec Technical Support website contains information about what each LiveUpdate service pack contains.
