What time are the Norton Core firmware updates supposed to occur? Thanks!
p.s. a Happy Thanksgiving to the Norton crew & everyone on these forums.
x_code_x There is never a set time or date for firmware releases. However most times they happen over night and on Pacific Coast time.
Thanks. So the reason I ask is because it seems to always happen for me around 7-8am right in the middle of the morning rush. Which of course interrupts internet, which of course these days fouls up everything and everyone in the house. I did notice my Core was still set somehow to Pacific Time Zone, so I changed it to Eastern. Do you think that will make it happen at 4-5am now instead of 7-8am which would be much better? If not, I was wondering how to schedule it to happen in the middle of the night.
Indeed the Core sets the default time when new firmware installs to Pacific time zone. At least it has for me. Presently there isn't a way to "schedule" firmware installs that I am aware of. My upgrades always happen overnight. This morning it triggered at 4:34 am Eastern Time.
OK great, yes that's what I'd want as well. So it must determine by the device's local time zone settings and not a standard time across all. Hopefully resetting it to my proper time zone (Eastern) will make it happen between 4-5am now which would be much better. I'll keep an eye on the next update.
Great. Glad to assist.
