Symantec's LiveUpdate component cannot run when no user is logged on the Macintosh system.
The LiveUpdate task fails with error: "Untrusted apps are not allowed to connect to or launch Window Server."
- Apple Mac OS X 10.4/10.5/10.6/10.7
- Symantec Endpoint Protection for Macintosh (SEP for Mac)
- Symantec AntiVirus for Macintosh (SAV for Mac)
A security restriction placed on Window Server by Apple Mac OS. For security purposes, the operating system disallows programs that are capable of generating a window (like LiveUpdate) from launching while no user is logged in. When a user logs in, any LiveUpdate task previously scheduled to run will launch.
Currently this is working as designed, but Symantec is currently investigating and will update this document once a solution is found.
