This document describes how to use Active Directory to deploy Symantec Endpoint Protection Small Business Edition 2013 .Cloud clients. This information is provided for convenience only and is not something support will be able to assist with.


To deploy the client using Active Directory, use the following steps:

  1. Select the "Computer Configuration\Software Settings" container in the GPO. Either create a new software installation policy or modify the existing one.
  2. Select your MSI package then select "Advanced" for the deployment method when prompted.
  3. From the Modifications tab, select SymGrupPolicyDeployment.mst from the network share (this customizes the distro installation).
  4. Click "OK" to complete the setup.

When the setup has completed, use the "gpupdate" command to refresh local and Active Directory based Group Policy settings on the client machine and reboot the machine(s).
