Client Software Deployment

Created: 04 Dec 2007 • Updated: 22 May 2010 | 1 comment
Hi everyone,
Im having troubles when i try to deploy the client software. I already add the clients from de manager console but when i export the install package the client software is not install on the clients machines. What can be happening??? because when i used migration and deployment wizard i see that i could deploy the clients but when i used the other way i can't.
Althought can sobody explain to me the differences between this too way of deployment.

I'm not sure how it all works, but I have had the best luck deploying clients from the whithin the management console using the find unmanaged clients option and then specifing the clients I want to install to. I had some issues that sound similar to yours and using exported install packages and then found the method i previousl mentioned. One thing I noticed is that SEP clients dont like to be installed over eachother. I've had better results unistalling a previous SEP install and then installing it fresh using the management console, particualrly when I wanted to add more options like Proactive Threat Protection.
