This article describes how to install LiveUpdate Administrator (LUA) for use as an internal LiveUpdate server.
LUA is an enterprise web application that lets you manage Symantec updates on an internal LiveUpdate (LU) server. LUA can be configured to download content for various products such as SEP, DCS, SMS, SPE, etc. LUA retrieves content from an external Symantec LU server to be published to Distribution Centers where clients can download from. Content can also be sent to a Testing Distribution Center before publishing so content can be vetted before being released to the entire environment.
When the installation completes, the Apache Tomcat Web server and PostgreSQL database server are also installed. The LUA Apache Tomcat and LUA PostgreSQL services are installed and started so that LUA is ready to. Both services are set to start automatically.
Update the product catalog
LUA updates the product catalog shortly after installation. If this does not happen, update the product catalog manually:

After you've downloaded your updates, they can be sent to either a testing distribution server, or published to a production distribution server where they can be downloaded by your LiveUpdate clients. When you add a distribution schedule, you also select the products and components that you want to associate with the schedule. This list of products and components is compared with the updates in the Manage Updates folder. Any revisions that are not already published will then be published in the current distribution session.
Note: The added products must also be added to the distribution center/s. This is accomplished through Configure > Distribution Centers, then edit an existing distribution center to add to the Product List.
