If anyone uses Norton AntiVirus on OS X in a big company, then you know how annoying it is to configure it for a big company. Well I learned some stuff that I thought I'd share with the world. Tomorrow maybe I'll share my daily cron job that replaces the Symantec Scheduler for updates on my corporate build.
What switches are available when calling LiveUpdate from a cron job or applescript?
- This will make LiveUpdate exit after running: -liveupdateautoquit YES
- Make LiveUpdate quiet except for an icon in the dock: -liveupdatequiet YES
- Prompt you with a Yes / No about running LiveUpdate (used by the Installer): -liveupdateoninstall YES
- The switch to do an update. LUal is the code for all products and virus defs: -update LUal
% /Applications/Norton Solutions/LiveUpdate.app/Contents/ MacOS/LiveUpdate -liveupdateautoquit YES -update LUalExample so that the TV set update window won't appear (again, one line, no space after the "/" but add one after "YES"):
% /Applications/Norton Solutions/LiveUpdate.app/Contents/ MacOS/LiveUpdate -liveupdateautoquit YES -liveupdatequiet YES -update LUalHope this helps!
