This article explain how to exclude Backup Exec from registering with LiveUpdate to avoid downloading the Backup Exec Updates along with updates for other Symantec software products.
For Backup Exec versions 11d and 12.0, this tool is obtainable through a manual download. See the Related Documents to download the tool.
For Backup Exec versions 12.5 and higher, BeUpdatesOps.exe is included by default and can be found in the Backup Exec installation folder (by default C:\Program Files\Symantec\Backup Exec\ or in X:\Program Files\Symantec\Backup Exec where X: is the installation drive of Backup Exec).
From the command prompt, navigate to X:\Program Files\Symantec\Backup Exec (where X: is the installation drive of Backup Exec) and run the command (see Figure 1):
BeUpdateOps.exe -AddBE -OptOut
Solution 2: Install Backup Exec from the command prompt
Install Backup Exec without the LiveUpdate Component per the following steps:
1. Open a Windows command prompt (Start, Run, CMD).
3. Change directories to \WINNT\INSTALL\BE.
4. Type setup /TS: /USER:<user> /DOM:domain /PASS:password /SNO:license key -S /NOUPDATE:
5. Press ENTER.
An installation job log named bkupinst.htm is created in the Application Data folder on the computer where Backup Exec is installed. This file lists any errors that may have occurred during installation and is the only source of feedback when running setup.exe. The last line of the log indicates if the installation was successful and if restarting the computer is required.
Please note: With solution 2, the patches/updates for Backup Exec will need to be downloaded/applied manually. http://www.symantec.com/business/support/downloads.jsp?pid=15047
