This issue has been solved. See solution.

If I have converted the Liveupdate Setting policy to non-shared-- by mistake. How do I convert it back to shared.

I have since created a linked Location-specific policy with a shared Liveupdate Setting policy. Can I use that shared policy and replace the non-shared one?  What is the proper way to do this?


using SEP 11.0.6a

with only a couple clients in this specific non-inherited with parent "My Company"

In SEPM - Policies

Select the Liveupdate Policy and assign it to the Groups it was assigned earlier including the one for which you made it non-shared.

It will become shared.
