The product listing file is a platform-neutral XML file that the Symantec Installation Manager uses to install the IT Management Suite solutions. The product listing file displays the IT Management Suite solutions that are installed on the computer and the products that are available for installation.
The default product listing file is symantec_v2.pl.xml.zip file. The product listing file can also be an uncompressed file.
You may be required to add a different product listing file manually in any of the following situations:
When you install the ITMS solutions on a computer without Internet connectivity.
When you purchase a product that has its own product listing file.
For example, the third-party products that have their own product listing files.
The Symantec Installation Manager accesses a product listing file that lists the products you can install and update. By default, the Symantec Installation Manager updates the product listing file once a day. Alternatively, you can set the time interval of updating the file, or manually update the product listing file at any time. You can also edit how frequently the Symantec Installation Manager gets the latest product listing file.
To add a product listing file
Log on to the computer where you installed the IT Management Suite solutions as an administrator.
On the computer, start the Symantec Installation Manager.
