Update Rollup 1 for Endpoint Protection 2010 introduces new features and updates. These new features and updates are summarized below.
The following list is a summary of the updates in FEP Update Rollup 1 for server functionality.
A tool that facilitates the use of the Configuration Manager software updates functionality to download FEP definition updates and make them available to client computers running the FEP client software.
In order to use the software updates feature for definition updates, you must perform the following high-level steps:
Download and install the Update Rollup 1 package.
Configure software updates to download definitions for FEP.
Configure the package by which the definition updates will be distributed, and configure the distribution settings for it.
Install and configure the FEP Software Update Automation tool.
Addition of support for the FEP client software for Windows® Embedded Standard 7, Windows Embedded POSReady 7 and Windows Server 2008 Server Core. For more information on the added client support, see Prerequisites for Deploying Forefront Endpoint Protection on a Client.
The following list is a summary of the updates to FEP policies included with Update Rollup 1.
Update Rollup 1 for FEP 2010 adds a new FEP policy option to configure definition updates for FEP client computers. After installing Update Rollup 1 for FEP, you can configure FEP policies to update definitions from a Configuration Manager software update point.
To configure FEP policies to update definitions from a Configuration Manager software update point
When you create a new FEP policy or edit an existing FEP policy, the new definition update options appears as follows:
When creating a new FEP policy, in the New Policy Wizard, on the Updates page, select the check box for Enable updates from Configuration Manager.
When editing an existing FEP policy in a Configuration Manager console that on which you installed the Update Rollup 1 for FEP, in the properties for a FEP policy, on the Updates tab, select the check box for Use Configuration Manager as primary source for definition updates.
For either scenario, you must select at least one additional definition update source which will be used as a fallback source for definition updates.
Editing a FEP policy with a Configuration Manager console that has not been upgraded to FEP Update Rollup 1 removes the new definition update option. We recommend you update all FEP console extensions to Update Rollup 1.
Addition of two new preconfigured policy templates for the following server workloads:
Microsoft Forefront Threat Management Gateway
Microsoft Lync 2010
