Hello,

I want to install EndPoint Protection 2012 on our master image for imaging purposes. Now, here is a tricky scenario. We will use one master image for domain and non-domain computers. I want to install EndPoint protection client on the master image in a way that if I deploy it on non-domain computers, it should look for internet in regards to updates, but if I deploy it on a domain machine, it should look for our SCCM 2012 SP1 server.

Is this possible?

Hi TAMUQITS

It is possible, you can download the ISO for FEP from MS volume licensing center, install it as a stand alone. This will mean that if a box is not on  the domain and it get the base image deployed to it, it can source updates for FEP from MS update. If a box get the gold image deployed to it and it is on the domain, Group policy and SCCM client settings should take over the behavior of FEP.

I would deploy two boxes and test, one on the domain and the other as standalone using the same Gold image.

Hi  Helao,

Thank you for your reply. In fact, I want to clarify a couple of things. First, we got SCCM 2012 SP1 with EndPoint Protection license; so, FEP is no more. Now it is called System Center EndPoint Protection (SCEP) which is integrated in SCCM 2012 itself.

I have already seen the first link that you shared. But my question is if I deployed the same master image (where SCEP client is installed manually) to domain computer, will it start pulling policy from our SCCM 2012 server.

Hi TAMUQITS

Thanks for the clarification. In my experience it should be able to, because as long as it is in a OU that is part of SCCM discovery and you have set the option to auto deploy the SCCM agent to new discovered computers, the SCCM policies should apply to SCEP
