Manage Packages

 

Applies to: Forefront Server Security Management Console

Topic Last Modified: 2007-06-06

"Packages" are used to deploy installations of Forefront Security and templates throughout your enterprise. When you create a package you indicate the location of the installation or template file and various other configuration settings, including the servers that the package will be deployed to. The package is then uploaded so that it is available to the deployment job. (For more information about jobs, see Manage Jobs.)

There are two types of packages:

  • Installation Packages – for more information about creating an Installation Package, see Installing Forefront Security On Remote Servers in Manage Jobs.
  • Template Packages – for more information about creating a Template Package, see Deploying Forefront Security Templates On Remote Servers in Manage Jobs.

After you have created a package, you can edit, copy, rename, and delete it.

These are the steps to edit a package.

To edit a package
  1. Click Packages in the Job Management section of the Navigation Area. The Manage Packages work pane appears.

  2. Select a package in the list by using its associated checkbox.
