The BEUPDATEOPS command from Rahul G - allows Backup Exec to download and install using the schedule from (say) your Symantec Anti-Virus installation or to only download when you run liveupdate manually from inside the console. It has different optiosn depending on what you want to do - OptOut should result in manual console requested downloads.

Similar problem


I have a similar problem  I installed SEPM on my backup exec server.  After doing this install i can no longer view the updates and choose which to install when taking the liveupdate option from backup exec.  When liveupdate is launched it automatically downloads and installs the updates.  Anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?
