Description

Managed client

You administer the clients from the console. Managed client computers connect to your network. You use the console to update the client software, security policies, and virus definitions on the managed client computers.

In most cases, you install the client software as a managed client.

You can install a managed client in either of the following ways:

  • During initial product installation

  • From the console after installation

Unmanaged client

The primary computer user must administer the client computer. An unmanaged client cannot be administered from the console. The primary computer user must update the client software, security policies, and virus definitions on the unmanaged client computer.

You install an unmanaged client directly from the product disc.
