You can check the System log. It will show  line that client is now acting as GUP.

You will see a line in there about the server now acting as a Group Update Provider

Below is an example of a system registry after the GUP is activated:

  • [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection\LiveUpdate]
    "Description"="Created automatically during product installation."
    "Enabled3rdPartyManagement"=dword:00000000
    "MasterClientHost"="192.168.2.4"
    "MasterClientPort"="2967"
    "UseLiveUpdateServer"=dword:00000000
    "UseManagementServer"=dword:00000001
    "UseMasterClient"=dword:00000001
    "HttpEncrypt"=dword:00000001
    "HttpProxyMode"=dword:00000000
    "HttpProxyRequireAuthentication"=dword:00000000
    "FtpEncrypt"=dword:00000001
    "FtpProxyMode"=dword:00000000
    "FtpProxyRequireAuthentication"=dword:00000000
    "AllowLocalScheduleChange"=dword:00000000
    "AllowManualLiveUpdate"=dword:00000000
    "EnableProductUpdates"=dword:00000000
    "LastLuProductInventoryHash"=hex:72,59,31,36,a8,3f,47,02,70,5f,bd,52,29,d0,25,\49

Thanks for the reply, i have one more question, how to check the client is working as a GUP?

At the client there are some hints that it's running as a GUP:

  • Client is listening at port 2967 (default), check it with netstat -an
  • In the folder C:\Program Files\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection\<Version number>\bin you can find the GUP cache folder called SharedUpdates.

At the SEPM console, you can search for GUPs as follows:

Clients > [Client tab] > Search clients

Under Search Criteria, enter "Group Update Provider = True" in the columns.
