The Client Deployment Wizard prompts you to specify the client installation settings for Windows clients. The client installation settings define the options of the installation process itself. You can define the target installation folder, whether to disable installation logging, and the post-installation restart settings, among other options.
You can choose the default client installation settings, or you can add a custom Client Install Settings under Admin > Install Packages > Client Install Settings. The contextual Help provides details about the settings that you can configure.
You should use silent installations for remote deployment to minimize user disruption. When you use a silent deployment, you must restart the applications that plug into Symantec Endpoint Protection, such as Microsoft Outlook and Lotus Notes.
If you use unattended installations (Show progress bar only), Windows may display to users one or more pop-up windows. However, the installation should not fail even if the user does not notice them.
You should not use an interactive installation for remote deployment. This installation type fails unless the user interacts with it. Security features (such as Windows Session 0 isolation) on some operating systems may cause the interactive installation wizard to not appear. You should only use the interactive installation type for local installations. These recommendations apply to both 32- and 64-bit operating systems.
