Installation package size

Created: 28 Jan 2013 | 3 comments

I created package by SEPM with the same options, but found the size is different. 

1. What content may cause the size difference ?

2. Does the package include policy setting in related group ?

 package options:

Unassigned group + Basic protection for server + Basic content + No auto restart

It should include policy if you have it managed but may not include updated definitions. Those will be downloaded after the install.

Check this thread:

In your case, only AV component will be installed.

Please click the "Mark as solution" link at bottom left on the post that best answers your question. This will benefit admins looking for a solution to the same problem.

yes, if you have selected the policy to be included ( managed)

- Content that can increase the size of the installer would be the AV definitions - during the package creation you have options between "All content" and "Basic Content" - it can be checked under Select the content for this package.

- Other thing that can increase the size would be installed features for SEP client - available options are here between Full Protection for clients - up to -> Basic protections for servers. You can as well create your own client install feature set.
