Creating Symantec Endpoint Protection client installation packages

You must create a Symantec Endpoint Protection client package before you can install and migrate Symantec Endpoint Protection clients from the Symantec Management Console. You must upload the Symantec Endpoint Protection client SETUP.EXE file into the Symantec Management Platform. The Symantec Management Platform creates a software package that you can roll out using Software Management Framework packaging features.

See Getting started with Symantec Endpoint Protection Management.

Note:

This task must be performed locally on your Notification Server computer.

To create a Symantec Endpoint Protection client package

  1. In the Symantec Management Console, on the Settings menu, click All Settings.

  2. In the left pane, click Settings > Software > Symantec Endpoint Protection > Client Package Configuration.

  3. On the Client Package Configuration page, under Symantec Endpoint Protection Packages, click New.

  4. On the Create Symantec Endpoint Protection Client Package page, complete the following options:

    Symantec Endpoint Protection Package Type

    The type of computers that you intend the package to run on; either 32-bit or 64-bit.

    Package Name

    The name of the installation package. The package name must be a valid Windows folder name because a folder is created on the Notification Server computer using this name.

    Symantec Endpoint Protection Setup File

    The location of the Symantec Endpoint Protection client SETUP.EXE file. The SETUP.EXE file must be stored locally on the Notification Server computer.

  5. Click OK.
