You can schedule the LiveUpdate Server to run and download definitions, if available. When LiveUpdate is scheduled to run on Hourly, Daily, or Weekly basis, the minute of the hour at which LiveUpdate session is started is selected randomly, between the values of 0 and 59, on each security virtual appliance. The minute value is not displayed in the management console.
For example: In the management console, under the LiveUpdate Settings tab of the SVA Config Base Policy, if LiveUpdate is configured to run daily at 14 (hour of the day), LiveUpdate session will start at some time between 14:00 and 14:59 hours, and each security virtual appliance will pick its own random minute value.
