Hi Srikanth,

What you are proposing is supported, but you should know that having a SEPM download updates directly from the Internet and distribute contents to its managed clients is going to be more efficient / less network traffic than having SEP clients download what they need from the LiveUpdate Administrator 2.x server.  The LUA 2.x mirrors what is on the internet LU servers: it will download some full packages, hub definition sets etc that may not be needed by any SEPMs in your environment.

Here are some articles that may be of interest:

Here is how to direct a SEPM to retrieve its content from an internal source, rather than the Internet:

If there are any errors on the SEPM, please examine its log.liveupdate.  The will reveal the cause of failure.

Hope this helps!

With thanks and best regards,
