This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hi all,

 

Installed LUA onto W2k3 server however it always failed to download updates.I read a few threads saying that LUA 2.1.3 will resolve this issue but it didnt work on me.My current version is 2.1.3.9.

 

Certains components can be downloaded.

 

Below are the event logs:

 

Download job from source server Symantec LiveUpdate has failed. There were 4 updates that failed to download.

 

Failed to download file 1213832680jtun_nav2k8enn10m25.m25 while processing request id 2.

This appears to be a known issue that may be seen from time to time. The subsequent download should take care of this.

 

What we believe is happening here is that in order for LiveUpdate to retrieve the updates you need, a catalog file and the update referenced in that catalog file both need to be retrieved. The catalog file gets downloaded first.. If for some reason the catalog file is available but the update is not, then this problem could occur. Typically these files would always be available at the same time.

 

We are looking at making a change so as not to report this as a problem, because if either of these are not availalbe, there really is no point in even offering the new update for download/distribution.

 

To ensure that this is in fact the issue that is being experienced, can we ask for a copy of the log files generated by LUA? Just run debug.do by typing http://localhost:8080/lua/debug.do

 

We'd also recommend a support case be opened.

Hi Donnell,

Hi you should have received instruction in another email to send the files to Symatnec

 

How often are your

1) download

2) distribution

schedules running?

 

Normally, the scheduled event following the event where the "issue" ocurred, should download the necessary files.

Once the download failed,the scheduled distribution will never run at all..only the download pass,then it runs..help pls!!

Eoghan ODonnell's picture

So the distribution should distribute what was successfully downloaded.

A workaround here is to run a download perhaps every 30 minutes and schedule a distribution for same.

 

The problm here is that updates have been refreshed during the download.

 

We should have a solution for this shortly.

hi donnell,

 

i have created 3 more download jobs to run each hour tonight starting at 10pm Singapore time and one scheduled distribution to run at 2am tml morning. i will update u again the result.

 

One more issue to highlight is that my "distribution Center Coverage" shown red with a X(incomplete).is it because scheduled distribution never run before?

 

May i know when will symantec release the fix?urgently need to resolve as i'm in the midst of configuring all client to endpoint server.Thanks for your assistance...

Eoghan ODonnell's picture

If you have a red X for distribution center coverage then that is indicitive of having no products selected for the Distribution Center profile.

 

Even if you set up a Distribution Schedule, and select the products that you want to distribute updates for, unless you have gone into the Distribution Center configuration settings and added those same products to the profile for the Distribution Center, LUA won't distribute those updates.

Hi donnell,

 

finally,the distribution center coverage status with a  green tick & scheduled distribution ran successfully.Thanks for your help.

 

However,my scheduled liveupdate still failed. any updates when will the fix be released?

 

one question to ask to clear my doubt.

 

if SEPM manager console,i need to configure to use liveupdate server.i just need to configure the live update server address such as http://servername:8080/clu-prod or http://servername:8080/clu-test

Correct me if i am wrong.

 

 

Eoghan ODonnell's picture

That should be correct regarding the SEPM console.

 

Stay tuned for the solution to your download schedule failure problem. Note that the next schedule will resolve the download failure, but as I noted we are looking at eliminating this error in the next release.

ahtshun's picture

Hi Donnell,

 

finally my scheduled distribution is working now. I have created two scheduled liveupdate to download only virus definitions and another two to download the following:

- Other Software Updates
- Firewall Rules
- Behavioral Crimeware Protection
Only one scheduled which download  "- Other Software Updates - Firewall Rules - Behavioral Crimeware Protection" completed. the rest failed to download.
any updates when the new release will be?In the meantime,i will monitor my issue and report to you daily.

Hi Donnell,

 

i found out that only those job which scheduled to download virus definition always failed. I still encounter this issue. This is the error log:

 

** Download job from source server Symantec LiveUpdate has failed. There were 4 updates that failed to download.

Failed to download file 1216250425jtun_nav2k8enn09m25.m25 while processing request id 19.

Failed to download file 1216250425jtun_nav2k8enn09m25.m25 while processing request id 19.

 

** Any solution to this matter yet? Please help!!I have started to manage my unmanaged sep clients..

 

 

as for scheduled distribution & job which scheduled to "other software updates","firewall rules" & "Behavioral Crimeware Protection" are working prefectly now.

ahtshun's picture

Donnell,

 

any updates to this pending issue?

 

Can i direct all my current SEP client to download updates from Liveupdate Administrator although the job which download virus definition always fails? According to Activity Monitor->Request details,some virus definitions were downloaded successfully,some skipped and 4 failed. Will SEP clients be updated with latest definition in this way? if yes,i will do so while waiting resolution from you. my concern is my network bandwidth..

 

Please advice!!
