  • Forefront Client security- Stirling standalone installation

     

    Hi All

     

    I’m trying to evaluate FCS beta 2 on windows 7 RC , and don’t know if we can install the FSC client without server ( standalone )

    The  client folder contains only

    fsysagentpackage.exe

    hostprotectionpackage.exe

  • Hello Fellow MVP!

    Yes, you can install the hostprotectionpackage.exe only. there is no "/NOMOM" switch like in FCS v.1.
    as i understand the fsysagentpackage.exe is the scom agent.

    When you install the hostprotectionpackage.exe only it will complain that it does not find the fsys agent but the protection will work fine and you will receive def. updates.

    good luck

  • many thanks for the answer

    I have did the same thing and the agent is reporting the following error

    Microsoft forefront client security error

    Client security cannot establish a connection   to forefront client security agent.

    And also you cannot scan selected files or folder

  • Dear MVP colleagues,

    I was desperately looking for standalone "hostprotectionpackage.exe" to try it on W7RC/64 but failed to find it (looked in Stirling install package as well as  ALL the virtual harddrives provided ...)

    //edit: seems that this file was in Beta1 and is no longer available in B2

    TIA and sorry for crossposts
