Since we’re simply launching a binary with the latest definitions, your client doesn’t have to run a compliance scan for updates, which makes for a faster way to update your Endpoint Protection definitions immediately after you install the client.

Here, we will need to create separate programs (4 total), with one each for definitions (mpam-fe.exe), and Network Inspection System (NIS) (nis_full.exe), for both 32 and 64 bit. Also, set the package to run normal, whether or not a user is logged on, and run with administrative rights.

Leave the requirements page as is, and finish the wizard.

In Software Library, under Application Management | Packages, choose to Create Package.

The first package we need to create is for the Endpoint Protection client.

With both packages now created, you’ll want to schedule the definition package to update distribution points on a schedule.

Go to package properties, and under data source, select update distribution points on a schedule (no more than once a day), and align that schedule with the scheduled task you have running to update definition files into the source directory.

You can get the client, SCEPInstall.exe, from the Client folder in your Configuration Manager site-server installation folder, and copy it over to wherever you want to source this package from.

You will also need a simple CMD file (step 1 below) and a base antimalware policy XML file as we’re going to call that with /policy, so 1) the desired policies can be configured at install time (through any modifications you choose to do to the policy file), and 2) so we can set Disable Update On Startup Without Engine, which is required to assure clients get their definitions from the next step in the task sequence, not as a download from an alternative source.

If the client gets a policy to install the Endpoint Protection client, and the client already exists, then it will simply start managing the existing Endpoint Protection client.

By installing the Endpoint Protection client as a package after the Configuration Manager client installation step in the task sequence, the Endpoint Protection client will be installed prior to the client receiving client settings policy to install it.

Also, using this process, along with the command line and AM policy settings referenced later, assures that definitions are installed as part of a package, and not downloaded over the WAN by your client.
