After installing the Microsoft Forefront Protection Server Management Console (FPSMC), you can configure it by launching the console user interface. You must have been granted permission to view the console. By default, the account used to install the console is granted access to the console. All other users must be manually granted access by following the steps in the Managing Users article.

To launch the Management Console user interface
  1. Click Start, click All Programs, click Microsoft Forefront Protection Server, and then click Forefront Protection Server Management Console.

  2. The console opens to the Home – At a Glance page.

Once the console is open you can add and manage your Forefront Protection 2010 for Exchange Server and Forefront Protection 2010 for SharePoint servers. For more information about the console, see Administrator Console Overview.
