Creating a Managed Software Delivery policy with the Managed Software Delivery wizard for Mac computers

Client Management Suite for Mac

You can perform one or more advanced software delivery actions with a single Managed Software Delivery policy. Creating a Managed Software Delivery policy is the first step in performing an advanced software delivery.

See Performing an advanced software delivery

See About advanced software deliveries

The Managed Software Delivery wizard provides a quick way to create and schedule a policy for a single software resource and its dependency software. We recommend that you use the wizard because it can include any dependency software and warn you of software associations.

When you create a Managed Software Delivery policy with the Managed Software Delivery wizard, the policy is enabled automatically. If you do not want the policy to be available to managed computers immediately, edit the policy, and disable it. You can also edit the policy to add information about what to deliver.

The software that you deliver in this way must be defined as a software resource in the Software Catalog.

You can run the Managed Software Delivery wizard from the Manage > Software view or from other areas of the Symantec Management Console. Your point of entry into the Managed Software Delivery wizard determines the amount of default information that is populated.

Create the policy without the wizard if you need to do any of the following things:

  • Add multiple software resources and tasks.

  • Override the default settings.
