Disk full message erroneously appears when downloading LiveUpdate updates

If your network environment already supports the proxy servers that are compliant with the HTTP 1.1 protocol or later, you can disregard this entry.

After you have tried to download LiveUpdate for the first time, the following message might appear:

"LU1863: Insufficient free disk space
There is not enough free disk space for LiveUpdate to operate properly. Please free up disk space on your computer and run LiveUpdate again."

You might have insufficient disk space. However, it is much more probable that this message appears in error because the proxy server is unable to send the correct Contents-Length header field.

This error message might appear on Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager, a Symantec Endpoint Protection client, or a Symantec Network Access Control client.

You should verify that the disk drive to...

After you configure database maintenance options, the new options are applied at midnight, and not immediately.

To configure the database options:

  1. In the console, click Admin > Servers, and then select a site.
  2. Under Tasks, click Edit Site Properties, and then click the Database tab.

To configure the management server to apply the database maintenance options immediately, you can configure the file.

To configure the file:

  1. Open the file, located in the C:\Program Files\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager\tomcat\etc directory by default.
  2. Change the following parameters:
  • Change scm.object.idletime=3600000 (in milliseconds) to a smaller number. The default setting is 1 month.
  • Change scm.timer.objectsweep=900 (in seconds) to a smaller number.The default setting...

I would like to take the opportunity to share the latest status of Symantec Endpoint Protection 11.0. In this update, I plan to review the latest maintenance release as well as the latest metrics we are seeing from Support. I will also give a sneak peak on what is coming next from the development team.

Maintenance Release 2 shipped to manufacturing in mid-April. MR2 includes severalfixes for customer deployment, significant improvements in SMB fit, as well as support for a few new releases from Microsoft (Windows Server 2008, Vista SP1.) This was a huge release by the team and it is making a big difference to our customers and partners. One example of the changes we made was around server memory requirements for Small Businesses. In the original 11.0 release, a customer needed 2gbs in order to run our management console. For most customers that dedicated a server to SEP, this was fine. For smaller customers that need to share the server space with other...

RSA went very well.  It is an interesting trade show.  It seems that the show has more vendors than customers.  It is a great place to network with other vendors.  For example, you can catch up on all your competitors (it is nice having them all in one spot.)  That alone, makes the trip worthwhile.  For this blog entry, I think I will keep it short and sweet and just highlight the three things that jumped out at me.

First, data protection was definitely an unofficial central theme.  From solutions that do full disk encryption to solutions that offer policy based prevention of data leakage, the show had it all.  I saw several interesting demos from companies like Verdasys and Utimaco.  Of course, Symantec has its own solutions in this space but as I mentioned it is good to...

Well, it has been a long time since I have updated this blog.  So many things going on.  To keep this update (and future ones) maintainable, let me keep the topic this week to my participation at RSA.  RSA is in San Francisco this week.  This is one of my favorite trade shows since it is focused around Information Security. I will be giving a speech on Symantec’s view of the future of Enterprise Security on Wednesday morning at 9:15am.

Besides giving a speech, there are also a few areas that I plan to investigate at RSA.  First, I want to see how all the smaller NAC players are doing.  There are considerably less of them today then there were last year.  Companies like Lockdown have closed their doors.  Our NAC solution is doing very well, in terms of customer feedback.  I think building it on top of our endpoint protection product is making adoption that much easier.  In addition, having the...

Let me start by saying, like many folks, I’m a competitive person.  No matter what I do in my professional, social or personal life, I’m driven to succeed.  I understand that people will go to extreme measures to try and stay competitive.  That brings us to the reason for this post, desperate actions by a competitor that obviously has something to worry about.

As some of you know, I oversee product management for Symantec’s endpoint security business unit.  We recently launched a new endpoint security product called Symantec Endpoint Protection 11.0.  Symantec Endpoint Protection is the culmination of a year and half long development project here at Symantec in which we tightly integrated multiple security technologies, some of which have been developed in house and some acquired through various acquisitions over the years. 

We really feel we have a game changing solution here that will allow...

Before I dig into the topic for this blog entry, let me recap a couple recent and important events. As the reader should already know, Symantec Endpoint Protection 11.0 has shipped. The final bits were delivered to manufacturing on September 12th. That started a process of publishing the software online (Sept 19th) as well as on physical media (Sept 27th.) We have already won some large deals (competitive;) and we are seeing a big positive impact on our customer’s satisfaction.

Also, as I mentioned in my last blog, I spent last week meeting with Altiris customers at the Altiris customer event called Manage Fusion. The event took place in Orlando the same time as Gartner’s ITExpo. Therefore, I also took a chance to visit a couple sessions at the Gartner show (and sip a few drinks swinging in a hammock at the Swan during the breaks. ;)

Let’s not get side tracked though, back on Manage Fusion. As one might imagine, I heard resounding support and...
