Backup Exec 12.5 Manually Check For Updates

I've been having strange errors with my servers lately, my Exchange Backup was failing and I got blue screens that were caused by VirtFile.sys

I found out that the problem was caused by Backup Exec. The first thing I always do is check for updates but I would like Live Update to function interactively. I went to the Control Panel, opened up Live Update and selected Interactive Mode.

When I opened up Backup Exec and tried to check for updates I got a strange error that stated that there are no products to check for updates for. I searched the Symantec KB for a while and I found a command that re-registers Backup Exec to Live Update.

The command is: "C:\Program Files\Symantec\Backup Exec\BeUpdateOps.exe -AddBE -OptOut"

After that I managed to update my server and I have no problems so far.

I switched it back to Express Mode after I fixed the problem with my Live Update server.
