Have FCS? Moving to FEP?

Hey folks!

I wanted to let you know that we have guidance for migrating from FCS v1 to FEP 2010 here (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg477033.aspx).

The process involves the following high level steps:

  1. Document the policy settings you want to preserve from FCS to FEP. There is no policy migration between the two versions.
  2. In WSUS, unapprove all the FCS v1 client installation packages.
    • If you forget to do this, you may end up with FCS v1 reinstalled.
  3. Install FEP on your Config Mgr installation, and proceed with the FEP client deployment.
    • The FCS v1 client software is automatically uninstalled and FEP is installed.
    • Also – the definitions already on the client computers are preserved, speeding up the up-to-date process for definition downloading.
