You can create client installation packages for groups at any time. If you have created customized policies that do not change often, you can create a client installation package for the group that uses these policies. This package can then be installed on new computers that are added to the group. However, a new client installation package is not needed to change policies. Changes to policies are automatically propagated to clients in the group to which the policies apply.
Client installation packages should be deployed with the silent or the unattended option to computers running Microsoft Windows Server 2008 or Microsoft Vista (x64). Only the silent option should be used for the installation packages that are deployed to computers running Microsoft Vista (x86). When a silent deployment is used, the applications that plug into Symantec Endpoint Protection, such as Microsoft Outlook and Lotus Notes, must be restarted.
For more information about client installation packages, see the Administration Guide for Symantec Endpoint Protection and Symantec Network Access Control.
