Enabling access to a package at a UNC source location
The Symantec Management Agent uses the agent connectivity credential (ACC) to connect to IIS on Notification Server to download UNC packages through HTTP. IIS then authenticates to the UNC source using the distribution point credential (DPC). The Symantec Management Agent uses the ACC to connect to download sources. Ensure that ACC has read access when the Symantec Management Agent downloads directly from the UNC package source.
The DPC is not used if the Symantec Management Agent downloads a package from a package server. The package server applies either anonymous access or the ACC to the downloaded package files.
To enable access to a package at a UNC source location
Specify the package distribution point credentials that you want to use.
You specify these credentials on the Distribution Point Credentials tab of the Notification Server Settings page. We recommend selecting Use Agent Connectivity Credential when you specify the package distribution point credentials. This option ensures that only one credential, the ACC, needs to exist on UNC package source locations.
