This article provides guidance on which specific product sub components are appropriate for selection, as part of LiveUpdate Administrator (LUA) configuration.

Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1

Firstly, it should only ever be necessary to select "Symantec Endpoint Protection v12.1 English". You do not need to select for other languages and you can ignore the additional SEP 12.1 product catalog entry that mentions (BETA).

If you plan to have SEP clients connect directly to certain LUA distribution centers to retrieve content, it is only necessary to download the sub-components marked as "Needed for: Client" (their names will usually start with SEPC).

If you plan to have the Manager (SEPM) retrieve content from certain LUA distribution centers (with the intention that the Manager would then in turn provide that content to its manged SEP clients), it is only necessary to download the sub-components marked as "Needed for: Manager" (their names will usually start with SEPM).

Please be aware that new definitions are needed for SEP 12.1 RU2.  The LUA 2.x server will need to be configured to download these definitions to update a 12.1 RU2 SEPM or SEP client.

I find it quite annoying that we would have to check many different versions of RU's just to update SEP.  It also takes up a ton of space.
