To configure a site to download updates
In the console, click Admin, and then click Servers.
Under Servers, right-click Local Site, and then click Edit Site Properties.
On the LiveUpdate tab, make choices from the following available options.
Under LiveUpdate Source Servers, click Edit Source Servers and then inspect the current LiveUpdate server that is used to update the management server. This server is Symantec LiveUpdate server by default. Then do one of the following:
To use the existing LiveUpdate Source server, click OK.
To use an internal LiveUpdate server, click Use a specified internal LiveUpdate server and then click Add.
If you selected Use a specified internal LiveUpdate server, in the Add LiveUpdate Server dialog box, complete the boxes with the information that identifies the LiveUpdate server, and then click OK.
You can add more than one server for failover purposes. If one server goes offline, the other server provides support. You can also add the Symantec public LiveUpdate server as the last server in the list. If you add the public server, use http://liveupdate.symantecliveupdate.com as the URL.
If you use a UNC server, then LiveUpdate requires that you use the domain or workgroup as part of the user name.
If the computer is in a domain, use the format domain_name\user_name.
If the computer is in a workgroup, use the format computer_name\user_name.
In the LiveUpdate Servers dialog box, click OK.
Under Disk Space Management for Downloads, type the number of LiveUpdate content revisions to keep.
In the Download Schedule group box, click Edit Schedule, set the options for how often the server should check for updates. Click OK.
Under Platforms to Download, click Change Platforms and then inspect the platforms list. Uncheck the platforms that you do not want to download content to.
Under Content Types to Download, inspect the list of update types that are downloaded.
To add or delete an update type, click Change Selection, modify the list, and then click OK.
The list should match the list of content types that you include in the LiveUpdate Content policy for your client computers.
