Symantec Endpoint Protection Client Package in Task Sequence

Recommended Posts

Hello All:

 

I am new to SCCM, and would request some assistance in pushing out the SEP client with the O/S. I am able to deploy the Windows 7 O/S with SCCM2012 task sequnce just fine, but the SEP Client ( with an already used sylink file) package is not being installed. I have placed this package at different levels in the task sequence, but no luck. I have created the SEP client package from the definition (MSI) and also the .exe, but neither worked. Can someone please provide a detailed solution, so that I can successfully install the SEP client on the newly deployed OS. Thanks!!

It would be pretty straight forward as an application. I believe the install is an msi and symantec will have switches and variables to input for any config.

 

My question is why would you want to use SEP which is a resource heavy product that costs money. Forefront is quite better and I believe if you're licensed for SCCM 2012 then you are licensed for the Forefront as well. We got rid of ESET which we were paying extra for and went to Forefront.
