Updating client software with a LiveUpdate Settings policy

You can update Symantec Windows and Mac 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. You can schedule a LiveUpdate session or you can manually start it. 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, LiveUpdate for Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager downloads and processes client updates and patches. 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. You can disable this setting under Admin > Local Site > Edit Site Properties > LiveUpdate, under Content Types to Download.

You cannot update the Linux client product software with LiveUpdate.
