The LiveUpdate client schedule settings are defined in the LiveUpdate Settings policy. These settings apply to LiveUpdate sessions that get the latest updates from either a Symantec LiveUpdate server or an internal LiveUpdate server.
To save bandwidth, you can let your clients run scheduled LiveUpdate sessions only if either of the following conditions is met:
Virus and spyware definitions on a client computer are more than 2 days old.
A client computer is disconnected from Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager for more than 8 hours.
To make sure that any client computers that connect to your network infrequently get the latest updates, let these computers get updates from a Symantec LiveUpdate server. These servers are public, and the client therefore does not depend on a connection to your network to get updates.
To configure the schedule for LiveUpdate downloads to Windows client computers
Click Policies and then click LiveUpdate.
On the LiveUpdate Settings tab, right-click the policy that you want, and then click Edit.
Under Windows Settings, click Schedule.
Make sure that Enable LiveUpdate Scheduling is checked. This option is enabled by default.
Specify the frequency.
If you select Daily, also set the time of day to run. If you select Weekly, also set the time of day to run and the day of the week to run.
If you select any frequency other than Continuously, specify the Retry Window.
The Retry Window is the number of hours or days that the client computer tries to run LiveUpdate if the scheduled LiveUpdate fails for some reason.
Set any additional options, if required. Symantec recommends that you keep the default values for running LiveUpdate if the definitions are out of date, or if the client has not connected recently to the management server.
