You perform this procedure in two stages:
Select and configure the client installation packages. Client installation packages are created for 32-bit and 64-bit Windows computers. The installation packages are stored on the computer that runs Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager.
Notify the computer users about the client installation packages. An email message is sent to the selected computer users. The email message contains instructions to download and install the client installation packages. Users follow the instructions to install the client software.
The Mac client install package is automatically exported as a
.zip file. To expand the package to the Apple install format .mpkg, you must use either the Mac
Archive Utility or the
ditto command. You cannot use either the Mac unzip command or any Windows unzip application.
To deploy clients by using a Web link and email
The New Package Deployment option uses the packages that are stored on the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager. By default, two packages are available. You can optionally create new packages with custom settings and features. Existing Package Deployment lets you use the packages that have been exported previously.
