LiveUpdate on the client is configured to retrieve updates from a non-Symantec host server, however it is still trying to access the Symantec servers.


LiveUpdate 5.0.0 introduced a method that enhances subscription handling accuracy. This method retrieves date information from Symantec servers, regardless of the host that was designated in the "liveupdate.conf" file. LiveUpdate packages themselves are still retrieved from the designated host.


LiveUpdate 5.0.1 and later will no longer check the Symantec servers unless explicitly configured to do so.
