As stated in my previous post, I have been asked recently about installing Endpoint Protection (SCEP) during the SCCM OSD process. This is pretty easy to do and the knock on affect is that you also can have SCEP available to install from your Software Catalog.
To prepare the SCEP software for deployment in your OSD task sequence and also for making SCEP available in your Software Catalog, please see the instructions in my previous post below:
Once you have completed this task and confirmed that it is working by installing to a test machine from your Software Catalog, you are now ready to add this installation step to your OSD task sequence.
To do this, you need to add an “Install Application” step towards the end of your task sequence and after the Configuration Manager client has been installed.
Once you have added the “Install Application” step, you need to give your step an appropriate name as below and then click the yellow star to add the SCEP application.
Then select the System Center Endpoint Protection from your own list of applications:
You should then have a step like below:
Now when your task sequence gets to this step, it will install the System Center Endpoint Protection with the default policy applied.
If you have any questions about this guide, please feel free to leave a comment and I’ll assist when I can.
