In DLP 15.7 and beyond, the Administrator Guide outlines new capabilities to utilize LiveUpdate to provide on-demand hotfixing to Endpoint Agents. Within environments where it is required, LiveUpdate Administrator allows locally sourced hosting of updates for DLP Endpoints. The advantages of this method include increased security, Internet Bandwidth conservation, and additional control over applied and certified hotfixes builds allowed to the Endpoints. This method also allows Endpoints which may exist with no Internet connectivity the ability to hotfix themselves in a "dark" network.
Release : 15.7
Component : Endpoint Prevent, LiveUpdate, LiveUpdate Administrator
1. Follow the "Setting up and using LiveUpdate for Symantec DLP agents on Windows" section in the Administrator Guide relevant to the version of DLP used.
2. Configure LUA with the following steps:
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.
