Disabling or enabling the product by using the FSC utility

 

Applies to: Forefront Protection for SharePoint

Topic Last Modified: 2010-01-27

The FSC utility (FSCUtility.exe) is a command line tool with which you can disable or enable Microsoft Forefront Protection 2010 for SharePoint (FPSP).

noteNote:
Unlike a reset, when you use FSCUtility.exe, the Microsoft Forefront Server Protection services are not removed. Only the dependencies that have been set are removed.

FSCUtility.exe is located in the FPSP program folder. (For information on the default location of this folder, see Default folders.)

The utility uses the following parameters:

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

There are other parameters, but you should only use them when support technicians direct you to do so.

You can use the FSC utility to disable FPSP.

importantImportant:
When you are not running FPSP, you are without its protection.
To disable the product
  1. Stop the relevant SharePoint and Forefront services. Typically, this includes Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Timer, World Wide Web Publishing Service, and all the applications using Microsoft SharePoint Object Model.

  2. From a command prompt, navigate to the FPSP program folder. (For information about the default location of this folder, see Default folders.)

  3. Enter the following command:

    FSCUtility /disable

  4. If you want to confirm that FPSP is disabled, enter the following command:

    FSCUtility /status

    You should see a listing of services and information about whether they are stopped or running. The key FPSP dependent services should be stopped.

  5. Restart the relevant SharePoint services.
