Deployment Solution is installed on the Symantec Management Platform that has its own set of functionalities, which you can extend.
After Deployment Solution is installed on Symantec Management Platform, you have to enable different predefined policies to complete Deployment Solution installation. These predefined policies are specific to the Windows, Linux, and Mac operating systems and lets you install, uninstall, and upgrade the Deployment components. The Deployment components are, Deployment Plug-in, Deployment Automation folder, Deployment Package Server Components, Deployment Task Server Components and so on.
A predefined policy uses a filter that specifies the client computers that the policy impacts. Policies update the targeted computers after the computers request for policy updates. The policies run on the specified client computers only when the policies are enabled. You can access a predefined policy by clicking the Settings menu and then expanding the Agents/Plug-ins and the Deployment and Migration folders.
You can only upgrade the Deployment Site Server Components of any previous versions. By default, when the upgrade policy for the site servers is rolled out, this Deployment Site Server component is automatically upgraded.
