Endpoint Protection with SCCM CB 1702 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    We have a new SCCM infrastructure with Windows 10 clients (1607). The single CM server is configured with SUP and other roles (SQL DB and SQL Reporting are configured with separate servers). Now we are planning to configure Endpoint Protection point role with the server as per article "".

    With client PCs we are using McAfee, at the same time we want to use defender and it should be updated from SCCM and a scheduled daily (quick) and weekly (full) scan should happen. To configure the role as well scheduled scan configuration is straightforward as mentioned with the article or should we take any extra stpes to complete the EP configuration?

    Thanks in advance

  • Yes, it's straight-forward and as described in that article -- they are the official docs after all.

    > "at the same time we want to use defender "

    Does this mean that you want to run McAfee and Defender at the same time on your clients? If so, this is a really bad idea and will lead to all kinds of performance issues and deadlocks.
