Creating a Managed Software Delivery policy with the Managed Software Delivery wizard in the enhanced console views
You can perform one or more advanced software delivery actions with a single Managed Software Delivery policy. Creating a Managed Software Delivery policy is the first step in performing an advanced software delivery.
The Managed Software Delivery wizard provides a quick way to create and schedule a policy for a single software resource and its dependency software. We recommend that you use the wizard because it can include any dependency software and warn you of software associations.
When you create a Managed Software Delivery policy with the Managed Software Delivery wizard, the policy is enabled automatically. If you do not want the policy to be available to managed computers immediately, edit the policy, and disable it. You also might edit the policy to add information about what to deliver.
The software that you deliver in this way must be defined as a software resource in the Software Catalog. If the software resource is not defined, contact an administrator who can edit the Software Catalog.
You can run the Managed Software Delivery wizard from the Manage > Software view or from other areas of the Symantec Management Console. Your point of entry into the Managed Software Delivery wizard determines the amount of default information that is populated.
Create the policy without the wizard if you need to perform any of the following tasks:
Add multiple software resources and tasks.
Override the default settings.
(Windows and Mac OS only) Add the policy to the Software Portal.
To create a Managed Software Delivery policy with the Managed Software Delivery wizard in the enhanced console views
In the Symantec Management Console, on the Manage menu, click Software.
In the left pane, under Deliverable Software, click Software Releases.
Right-click a software resource and then click Actions > Managed Software Delivery.
If the Managed Software Delivery option is not available, the software resource does not have a package associated with it and cannot be delivered. Click Actions > Edit Software Resource and configure the software resource.
In the Managed Software Delivery wizard, on the Select software page, specify the software to deliver and other delivery options and then click Next.
On the Select destinations page, specify the destinations to deliver the software to and then click Next.
