Can SEP 12 pull defs from a SEP 11 LiveUpdate server

Created: 06 Sep 2012 | 4 comments

We have a new SEP 12 SEPM server.  It is physically located near a SEP 11 LiveUpdate server that pulls definitions daily.  Can the SEP 12 SEPM server pull definitions from the SEP 11 LiveUpdate server?

no,

Running LiveUpdate for SEP 12.1 will update only SEP materials.  It will not also download updates for all the other Symantec products on the computer, as SEP 11 did.

Are you talking about LiveUpdate Administrator (LUA) 2.x? You should be able to configure it to obtain 12.1 updates as well.

(Which version of LUA is it?)

In my opinion you can upgrade your Liveupdate server to 2.3 and configure it to donload updates for both 11.0.X and 12.1 clents/SEPMs.

Hello,

A SEP 12.1 SEPM can supply definitions to SEP 11 clients if necessary, but a SEP 11 SEPM cannot supply SEP 12.1 defs.

Secondly, Incase, if you have SEP 12.1 SEPM, which you need to update the definitions from a Liveupdate Administrator (server), then make sure you are running the Latest version of Liveupdate Administrator 2.3.1 and above which would update the SEPM 12.1 as well as SEPM 11.x (if any).

Hope that helps!!
