Scheduling updates in symantec endpoint protection manager

This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hi ,

 

Iam working in an organisation with 300+ branches. The bandwidth utilization goes extremely high on peak hours due to antivrus updation which takes place in those branches. Is ther any way of scheduling the update installation in non-peak hours?
We are using symantec endpoint protection manager 12.1.. and have created 300+ groups for our individual branches.

Thanks,
anish

Hi Ashish,

 

Thanks for the post. But would it work without a live update server?
