    How to save Symantec EP Live Update files/cache?

    I have 2 laptops and 1 desktop; I have Symantec Endpoint Protection(SEP) on a laptop for last 1 year.
    Now I want to install SEP on my 2nd laptop and the desktop.

    Is there any way to use the live update files/cache from the 1st laptop to update installed SEP on the other laptop and desktop? because I came to home and I have limited data (internet).

    Any idea?

    I am Chetan Savade from Symantec Technical Support Team.

    There isn't any supported way to copy files from another machine but it is possible to update the antivirus definitions on managed or unmanaged SEP clients using a standalone tool. See How to update definitions for Symantec Endpoint Protection using the Intelligent Updater for details. But in this case also need to download files
