Installing and managing FSSP in a multiple server environment

[This topic is pre-release documentation and is subject to change in future releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]

Stirling includes a centralized management console that enables administrators to deploy, configure, and manage Forefront Security for SharePoint (FSSP) on multiple SharePoint servers. To deploy group policies and manage multiple instances of FSSP, you must use Stirling.

To install and manage FSSP in a multiple SharePoint server environment
  1. Install each instance of FSSP individually. For more information about installing FSSP, see Installing FSSP.

  2. On each SharePoint server running FSSP, manually install the Stirling monitoring components (Stirling agent and Operations Manager agent) so that Stirling can successfully communicate with FSSP.

  3. Using the Stirling console, create groups that include one or more instances of FSSP, create policies for FSSP, and then deploy those policies to the groups. For more information about working with groups and policies, see the Stirling Operations Guide.
