The SharePoint FSC utility

 

Applies to: Forefront Security for SharePoint

Topic Last Modified: 2007-12-07

The FSC Utility (FSCUtility.exe) is a command line utility with which you can enable or disable Forefront Security for SharePoint.

noteNote:
When you use FSCUtility.exe, the Forefront Security Windows services are not removed. Only the dependencies that have been set are removed.

FSCUtility.exe is located in the Forefront Security installation directory. It has the following parameters:

  • FSCUtility /status   Gives an on-screen report showing the status of Forefront Security and the server.
  • FSCUtility /disable   Disables Forefront Security dependencies and the VSAPI hook.
  • FSCUtility /enable   Enables Forefront Security dependencies.

There are other parameters, but they should only be used when you are directed to do so by support technicians.

You can use the FSC Utility to disable and enable FSSP.

To disable Forefront Security for SharePoint by removing dependencies
  1. Stop the SharePoint and Forefront services.

  2. Disable Forefront Security dependencies from a command prompt by entering:

    fscutility /disable
    
  3. Restart the SharePoint services.

CautionCaution:
When you are not running FSSP, you are without its protection.
To enable Forefront Security for SharePoint by reestablishing dependencies
