Symantec Live Update Administrator - Download Size

Created: 07 Sep 2012 | 4 comments


to face some requirements in our company, I'm trying to use LUA (Version: to provide updates to some specific clients.

What I'm concerned about is the size of the VDF LUA server download from Symantec. Every update it downaload 3GB, having as product only SESC Virus Definition (both 32 adn 64 bit )

Is that normal or some misconfiguration taking place?

Can you help?

First of All, I would request you to make sure you are running the Latest version of LUA 2.3.1.

The newer LUA 2.3.1 is on the DVD of the newly released SEP 12.1 RU1 MP1.   You can also get a copy by getting in touch with Tech Support.

Secondly, check this Article:

and these Threads:

Secondly in case, if you have the SEPM and LUA installed on the same server, check this Article:

LiveUpdate Administrator 2.x and Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager on the Same Physical Server

Hope that helps!!!
