Updating client software with a LiveUpdate Settings policy

You can update Symantec client product software automatically by permitting product updates with a LiveUpdate Settings policy. When product updates are permitted and an update is available, clients download and install them when a LiveUpdate session runs. The session can be scheduled or manually started. When the LiveUpdate policy is not configured to download product updates, client software can be only updated by using the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager console or manually.

By default, when the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager downloads and processes content through LiveUpdate, it is configured to download client updates. When the management server downloads a new client version, you can select the new package and upgrade clients with AutoUpgrade or with another upgrade method.
