Table: Client computer preparation
Identify client computers
Identify the computers on which you want to install the client software. All the computers must run a supported operating system.
For the most current system requirements, see: Release Notes and System Requirements for all versions of Symantec Endpoint Protection and Symantec Network Access Control
Identify computer groups
Identify the computer groups to which you want the clients to belong. You can group clients based on type of computer, to conform to your corporate organization, or the security level required. You can create these groups if you have not already done so. You can also import an existing group structure such as an Active Directory structure.
Prepare computers for remote deployment
Prepare the computers for remote client deployment.
Deploy client software
You deploy the client software using any of the three available methods. You can also export a customized client package before you deploy it.
Verify installation status
You should confirm the status of the clients in the console. Managed clients may not appear in the console until after they are restarted.
You can take additional steps to secure unmanaged computers and optimize the performance of your Symantec Endpoint Protection installation.
