This must be easy and I'm just missing it... I have 30 or so clients installed with All Features. The Network Threat Protection is a pain and I want to reinstall to the clients with the Only Antivirus and Antispyware package. Using the manager console how do I reload the clients with the more limited package? Or even how do I remotely remove the client software altogether?

You will need to build a custom package through the console that leaves out the NTP. I had to do the same thing at a site because it killed DNS and DHCP. This package can then be deployed to all clients.

That helps. I also found that the manager console has no way to redeploy - you have to use the Push Deployment Wizard ( \Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager\tomcat\bin directory, and then double-click ClientRemote.exe.) to get the new setup.exe out there.

It was amazing to see the overall functionality if the End-Point Protection but the NTP was just unfriendly in a networked environment. I ended up just creating a share that everyone could see then just make the deployment a silent install. Create a batch file that ran the install on start up and everyone was good to go.

If you create a custom package with only the Anti-Virus and AntiSpyware features and deploy this package to the client group , with no set scheduled time , they will automatically upgrade/downgrade to that package.

It may take a couple of days though
