An unmanaged (or self-managed) client usually allows a user greater control of Symantec Endpoint Protection settings through the client user interface. Typically, you install an unmanaged Symantec Endpoint Protection client directly on to a Windows computer, and the installation requires user input to complete.
When you install a managed Windows client installation package directly on to the client computer, the steps to install are similar. Only an Interactive installation requires user input. The client installation setting options Show progress bar only and Silent do not require user input.
To install an unmanaged Windows client
Unmanaged client packages that are configured with custom policies may not display during installation some of the panels that are described. If you do not see an installation panel that the procedure step describes, skip to the next step.
Double-click Setup.exe, and then click Next.
If you purchased a physical disc and want to install an unmanaged client, insert the disc. The installation should start automatically. If it does not start automatically, double-click Setup.exe. Click Install an unmanaged client.
For version 12.1.x, the installer selects Unmanaged client by default. Click Next. If you click Managed client, the installer advises you to install using a managed client installation package, and then quits.
This panel appears in 12.1.x when you install the client software for the first time on a computer.
On the Setup Type panel, click one of the following options:
Click Typical for the most common options, and then click Next.
Click Custom to configure your installation, click Next, select the protection types, and then click Next.
