Installing the Forefront Protection Server Management Console
Topic Last Modified: 2010-12-13
Before you install the Microsoft Forefront Protection Server Management Console (FPSMC), all minimum system requirements must be met. For more information, see Verifying System Requirements.
To install the FPSMC, you must use a domain account that has local admin rights on the server.
There are two installation scenarios available:
- Installing FPSMC on a Stand-Alone Server—This option installs the FPSMC on a single server and provides all of the features except redundancy.
- Installing FPSMC on a Primary or Backup Server—This option requires two separate installations of the FPSMC on two separate servers. The primary server acts as the main point from which to manage FPSMC and the backup server provides fault tolerance.
