LiveUpdate & Maintenance Releases, Maintenance Patches, & Point Patches
Created: 25 Jan 2008 • Updated: 22 May 2010 | 2 comments
As I understand the SEP 11.x documentation, LiveUpdate within SEP 11.x now updates the SEP 11.x program, itself and scan engine, along with the definitions or virus patterns. Does this, specifically, include any maintenance releases, maintenance patches, point patches, etc? As a faithful user of Symantec AntiVirus Corporate Edition, I would especially like the ease of use this new functionality would provide for me and my clients. Do I understand this correctly? Does SEP 11.x license holders, specifically, those without platinum & gold status, have the ability, by default, to use LiveUpdate, within SEP 11.x, to update the SEP 11.x program, itself, including all maintenance releases, maintenance patches, and point patches? And, if so, how long of a delay do such users have in downloading these updates, via LiveUpdate, once such updates are released to platinum and gold customers? Finally, what is the extent to which the program can be updated via LiveUpdate? I would assume that LiveUpdate would not allow for a major release, say from version 11.x to 12.x; however, will customers be able to update the program from 11.0 to 11.1 or to 11.9, via LiveUpdate?
