I am taking a serious look at MS ForeFront EPP as a possible replacement for our current antimalware solution. I'm doing this primarily because we have an EA with MS and that happens to be included in our CORE EA.
After trudging through the mess that is the setup of SCCM and FF, if it wasn't for the fact that it's "Free" for me, I would have abandoned this a couple of days ago as too convoluted to install or fool with.
However, on to my issues. I have SCCM 2007 installed and pointed to a SQL server. I have FEP installed as well. I have created a test collection in SCCM and have assigned one PC to it. I have created and configured a policy. I have assigned that policy to that collection that has just the one PC as a member.
So far, I don't see any evidence either on the PC or in FEP that the policy has been distributed to the PC.
So I have two questions. First, any idea what I may have missed? Second, is there an overarching document that outlines all of the things that have to be configured in SCCM in order for FEP to work? Both of these apps are new to me and so I am slogging my way through them.
