Failure in Deploying a Symantec Endpoint Protection 11.x agent or Symantec Protection Agent (SPA) 5.x package from a Windows 2003 Web Server.
If an Agent package is distributed from a Windows 2003 web server system with Internet Information Services (IIS), it is required to configure the web site properties to add a MIME type for the .dat and .ini file extensions that are to be downloaded. Otherwise the package cannot be downloaded successfully.
To add a MIME type:
Start the Internet Information Services console.
Right-click the Web site and select Properties.
Click the HTTP Headers tab.
Click the Mime Types button.
In the MIME Types dialog box, click New. A dialog box is displayed in which file extensions can be attached.
In the Extension field type the file extension .dat, and in the MIME type field, type a description such as DAT file.
Repeat step 6 for .ini files.
Click OK to save the settings.
