forefront-logo-300x83
When setting up Microsoft ForeFront The first thing to do is to run Serversetup.exe.
Of course you’ll want to run the file so click Run.Fill in your Name and Organization then click Next.You’re going to have to put a check in I accept the software license terms.When you do Next will be available so click Next.Now this is where you’re be choosing your topology. For this example we’llgo ahead and chose a Basic topology. This will install Microsoft ForefrontEndpoint Protection 2010 Database, Site Server Extension, Console Extension,Reporting components, and Reporting database based on your currentConfiguration Manager deployment. Maybe in future blogs I’ll go through otherdeployment options. Don’t forget to click Next.Here is where you will setup the Reporting server account information.Mostly it will be filled out by the user running setup but you can change thedomainusername. Click Next.If the password you typed doesn’t match the domainusername you’ll get theerror below.

Microsoft Forefront Endpoint Protection 2010
Error: The password is incorrect, or this account is not valid. Account :domainusername

After I corrected my intentional typo FEP is now warning me that I shouldn’tuse my domain admin account.
Microsoft Forefront Endpoint Protection 2010
For security reasons, it is not recommended to use a domain administratoraccount ‘domainusername’ as the reporting account.

I’m going to OK this because it’s just a test lab.
By default FEP will want to Join the Customer Experience ImprovementProgram. I recommend keeping this checked. I also checked User Microsoft Updateto keep my products up to date.

Join Microsoft Spynet Basic is checked by default. I changed mine toAdvanced SpyNet.

Location and disk space requirements blah blah blah.

Oh no! It looks like my Verifying SQL Server prerequisite Failed with anError.

When I click the More link I see the error below
Forefront Endpoint Protection 2010 requires that the SQL Server Agentservice is running. Set the service to start automatically, and then start theservice.

Fixing the error was simple. I set the SQL Server Agent to Automatic and startedit.

When I ran the Prerequisites Verification again (by clicking back then next)I got a warning.

Clicking more gave me the message below.
Warning: Setup has detected that the connection to the SQL Server is notencrypted. If the SQL Server and Forefront Endpoint Protection 2010 are notlocated on a shared secure subnet, transmitted data can be viewed by thirdparties. We recommend that you secure the connection to the SQL Server. Formore information, see Securing SQL Server in the SQL Server documentation.

I like the fact that it’s encouraging you to enable SQL server encryptionbut since this is for testing and and on the same box this isn’t required. I’mgoing to ignore this warning.
The final screen is where you’ll get a summery of what the setup applicationwill do.

Here’s the final screen in the setup program. I really want to see theConsole and check for updates so I’ll leave them both checked and click Finish.

As I’m waiting for SCCM to open I’ll look and see what databases FEPcreated.
It appears it created a FEPDB_AAA and FEPDW_AAA database. AAA being my SCCMsite code.

Well there it is. FEP installed and in SCCM. FEP looks like it’s going to becompletely different than FCS so in my upcoming blogs I’ll talk about thedifferences.
