Use the LiveUpdate Wizard
to conveniently install new releases of Symantec ESM security
updates, agent software upgrades, or best practice policies from
the Internet, a product disc, or a network drive.
LiveUpdate checks for new
Symantec ESM security updates. If an update is available,
LiveUpdate downloads the security files to the ESM console. The ESM
console distributes the security files to the managers. The
managers make the updates available to the agents.
If the update contains an agent software upgrade,
the upgrade must be initiated manually. Certain security
considerations necessitate this setup.
Security updates and best practice policies are
distributed automatically at the next policy run to updateable
Symantec ESM always
authenticates the LiveUpdate files on the manager and agent before
it installs a security update.
During the installation of an ESM agent, you can
choose to enable or disable LiveUpdate. If you choose to enable
LiveUpdate, you can select the managers that distribute security
update files to the agent.
You can enable or disable LiveUpdate on agents any
time after installation. See Change Update Properties for
instructions on performing this task.
