    I want to deploy Forefront Client Security in a Workgroup environment. Is this possible?

    If possible then how will the clients get updated?

  • Hi,

    Install the FCS client with the /nomom switch and then go to your FCS server and create a new policy with the settings you want for your workgroup computers. Deploy this policy to a file (.reg). Copy it to each of your workgroup computer and use fcslocalpolicytool.exe to merge the reg file on the computer http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb418857.aspx

    About updates, if you have a WSUS Server, so on each workgroup machine open gpedit.msc then go under Computer Configuration, expand Administrative Templates, expand Windows Component, and then click Windows Update, now you need configure your group policies to point machine to the WSUS server.
