Symantec Endpoint Protection - Changing the LiveUpdate Schedule

This document walks through the steps necessary to change how LiveUpdate is scheduled to automatically check for updates.

By default, LiveUpdate will run daily. This is the recommended setting. If you have a need to change either the frequency or update time, you can do so by following these instructions.
  1. Start Symantec Endpoint Protection by double-clicking the yellow shield icon in the system tray. (Note: If you are running in safe mode, the icon in the system tray will not be present. In this case, open Symantec using the program icon from the start menu.)

  2. Click on the Change settings button in the left navigation.

  3. Click the Configure Settings button next to "Client Management".

  4. In the new window that opens, select the "LiveUpdate" tab.

  5. Change the LiveUpdate schedule.

  6. Click OK to close the Virus Definition Update Schedule dialog.

You are finished updating the LiveUpdate schedule. You can close Symantec Endpoint Protection.
