What are the DS 7.x Policies and how should they be configured? We want to be sure we have Deployment Solution configured correctly but are confused about what each policy is or what should be turned on and/or off.
The answer to that question is "it depends" because every environment is unique. However, hopefully the information provided here will give you pretty good guidance, along with reasons, for where you should start.
Under Settings | All Settings:
Settings\Agents/Plug-ins\Deployment and Migration\Windows
Settings\Deployment and Migration\Symantec Boot Services
Settings\Deployment and Migration
All the options here are simply settings. Initial Deployment is actually managed under PXE Server Configuration for instance.
