Hello,

I'm trying to install ForeFront Client security but keep hitting the same issue;

all of the forefront services are installed on the SQL server bar, the Distribution service as this of course needs to bee installed on the same server as WSUS - in this case for me System Center Essentials.

The erroe I keep getting is;

"configures distribution server component" Status Error.
