Set up an internal LiveUpdate Administrator server to download updates and virus definitions for Symantec Endpoint Protection for Linux (SEP for Linux or SEPFL) clients.
Remember that there are four required areas to set up for definitions in LUA 2.x.
These four areas are:
To update the LUA 2.x Server's Symantec Product Catalog
To add the SEPFL product to the product list
To create a new download schedule
You can check the full product family to get all definition sets, including Linux definitions, OR
After making your selection(s):
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.
To add a new distribution schedule
To set up clients to download updates from the internal LiveUpdate server
For Managed SEP for Linux Clients
For unmanaged SEP for Linux clients
There are two ways:
1. Client Settings Host File:
For unmanaged SEP For Linux clients, export the client settings host file "Settings.Hosts.LiveUpdate." This is used to configure Windows LiveUpdate clients to download updates from the Distribution Center. The liveupdt.hst file is used by Java LiveUpdate clients (unmanaged SEP for Linux)
To generate a host file for Java LiveUpdate clients:
The file for Java LiveUpdate clients should be saved as liveupdt.hst. It can then be copied to the SEPFL client's working directory, which by default should be /tmp.
It may be necessary to add an extra entry that explicitly provides the location to the LiveUpdate host file:
If the hostfile= entry is specified, then it will override any other transport settings in the LiveUpdate.conf file.
To do it open liveupdate.conf file in VI editor and edit the file manually.
1. Backup the existing liveupdate.conf file
In a terminal line:
# cp /etc/liveupdate.conf /etc/liveupdate.conf.orig
2. Enter the following line as it is into the file /etc/liveupdate.conf
# cd /etc
# vi liveupdate.conf
Example of a working SEPFL /etc/liveupdate.conf file working with LUA:
When the LiveUpdate client runs, it will use the host file for information on where to download updates.
