Installing and uninstalling Deployment Solution components

Deployment Solution

Deployment Solution rolls out the installation and uninstallation of the site server components as a policy. The Deployment site server components include Deployment Package Server component and Deployment Task server component. The Deployment Task Server component can be installed on Windows x86 or x64 site servers. By default, the Deployment Package Server component-Install policy and the Deployment Task server component-Install policy are enabled. The Deployment Task Server component is rolled out on the site server on which Task service runs. The Deployment Package Server component is rolled out on the site server on which the Package service runs. For both Task Server component-Install policy and the Package Server component-Install policy the predefined target computers filter, filters the target site servers and installs the policy on the site server. Symantec recommends that you do not modify these set filters. If you want to modify the target computers then you must clone the default policy first and then modify the cloned policy.

Ensure that you install the Deployment Package Server component only on the site servers on which IIS 7.0 or later versions are installed. All the site servers that are installed with IIS 7.0 or later versions are discovered automatically and listed for the Applied To filter of the Deployment Package Server Component - Install page of the console. You must not manually install the Deployment Package Server component on any site server other than the ones that are discovered and listed for the filter.

The Deployment Solution site server component policies and the menus to access them from the console are as follows:

Deployment Task ServerComponent(x64)-Install or DeploymentTask ServerComponent(x86)-Install or Deployment Task Server Component (x64) - Uninstall or Deployment Task Server Component (x86) - Uninstall

You can access the Task Server Component in one of the following ways:

  • Settings > All Settings > Agents/Plug-ins

    In the left pane, navigate to Settings folder > Agents/Plug-ins folder > Deployment and Migration folder. From the Deployment and Migration folder, select the Windows(x64) or Windows(x86) folder.

  • Settings > Agents/Plug-ins > All Agents and Plug-ins

    In the left pane, expand the Agents/Plug-ins folder > Deployment and Migration folder.

    From the Deployment and Migration folder, select the Windows(x64) or Windows(x86) folder.

Deployment Package Server Components-Install or Deployment Package Server Component-Uninstall

You can access the Package Server Component in one of the following ways:

  • Settings > All Settings > Agents/Plug-ins

    In the left pane, expand the Settings folder > Agents/Plug-ins folder. > Deployment and Migration folder.

    From the Deployment and Migration folder, select the Windows(x64) or Windows(x86) folder.

  • Settings > Agents/Plug-ins > All Agents and Plug-ins

    In the left pane, expand the Agents/Plug-ins folder >Deployment and Migration folder.

Ensure that both the Deployment site server component -Install policy and the Deployment site server component - Uninstall policy are not running at the same time as this causes conflict.

To install or uninstall a Deployment Solution component

  1. In the Symantec Management Console, select Settings > Agents/Plug-ins > All Agents/Plug-ins.

  2. In the Agents/Plug-ins page, on the left pane tree, expand the Deployment and Migration folder.

  3. In the Deployment and Migration folder, select the policy from one of the following:

    • DeploymentTaskServerComponent(x64)-Install

    • DeploymentTask ServerComponent(x86) - Install

    • Deployment Package Server Components - Install

    • Deployment Task Server Component (x64) - Uninstall

    • Deployment Task Server Component (x86) - Uninstall

    • Deployment Package Server Component - Uninstall

  4. On the right-side pane, you can view the details of the selected policy. Symantec recommends that you do not modify the default settings of the policy. If you want to modify the settings, first clone the policy and then modify the cloned policy.

    The details of the fields are as follows:

    Program Name

    Displays the name of the program that is applicable.

    Enable Verbose Reporting of Status Events

    This option sends the package status events to Notification Server. The Notification Server Event Capture settings in the Global Symantec Management Agent Settings policy take precedence to the Enable Verbose Reporting setting here. Events are sent only if they are enabled in the Global Symantec Management Agent Settings policy.

    Applied to

    Diplays the computers to which the policy applies. By default, Deployment Solution lists the targets in the textbox, as per the predefined filter that is set for the SMP. A target is a group of computers that are created as per the set filter.

    Package Multicast

    This option disables the package download through multicast. Multicast slows down the rollout of a package, so you can turn it off for an urgent patch. Additionally, in some environments multicast does not work. For example, multicast has to be disabled for routers and switches. The Package Multicast settings in the Global Symantec Management Agent Settings policy take precedence to the settings here.

    Schedule

    The policy schedule is displayed. By default, the options that are configured in the Extra Schedule Options field are applicable. Symantec recommends maintaining these settings. By default, the Run once ASAP and the User can run options are selected.

    Extra Schedule Options

    The Extra Schedule Options that are selected by default are as follows:

    • Run once ASAP

    • User can run

  5. Click Save changes to save the configuration settings of the policy.
