How do I create a deployment package RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm using the management console user guide to help me with the installation / configuraiton.  I've got the console installed and I'm ready to deploy clients, but the isntructions say to browse to the client install package file, but I don't know where this file is and/or how to create it.   The manual seems to totally skip this information.  Can someone point me in the right direction.  Thanks much.

  • Hi,

    You have a folder called "CLIENT" on your setup media. in that folder you will find the installation media (clientsetup.exe) for x86 and x64 clients.
    There is no way to deploy/push the clients via the FCS console. you have to rely on either WSUS (in this case you don't need the client setup media because it will be installed through WSUS), scripts or software distribution (like SMS/SCCM or 3:party).

    you should also check out www.codeplex.com and searc for forefront. there is a deployment tool there (and other good stuff)

    good luck
