      Below is a description of each of these tools:
      • FEP Group Policy Tool (fep2010grouppolicytools-en-us.exe)
        The FEP Group Policy tool is used to import settings from FEP policy XML files into a Group Policy Object (GPO) in an Active Directory domain, or into the Local Group Policy object on a Windows computer. The tool can also be used to export FEP settings from a GPO into a FEP policy XML file.
        The FEP ADMX template is used in conjunction with Group Policy Editor in order to manage FEP antimalware settings with Group Policy.
        For information about installing and using the FEP Group Policy tool, see Using Group Policy with FEP in the FEP 2010 TechNet Library.
      • FEP Server Role Policies for Use with System Center Configuration Manager 2007 (fepserverrolepoliciesforusewithconfigmgrui.exe)
        These files are FEP policy XML files, each of which has preconfigured optimized settings for particular server roles such as Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Exchange, and Active Directory. The settings enable exclusions and change other FEP antimalware settings to minimize the impact of FEP on the designated server workload.
        The policy files for use with Configuration Manager are designed to be used only in conjunction with the FEP management node in the Configuration Manager console.
        Do not use the FEP Server Role Policies with the FEP Group Policy tool. If you do, Group Policy merging might result in the intended configuration not being applied.
        For information about installing and using the FEP Server Role Policies, see FEP Policy Templates in the FEP 2010 TechNet Library.
      • FEP Server Role Policies for Use with Group Policy (fepserverrolepoliciesforusewithgpo.exe)
        These files are FEP policy XML files, each of which has preconfigured optimized settings for particular server roles such as Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Exchange, and Active Directory. The settings enable exclusions and change other FEP antimalware settings to minimize the impact of FEP on the designated server workload.
        The policy files for use with Group Policy are designed to be used only in conjunction with the FEP Group Policy tool, and are specifically designed so that Group Policy merging results in the correct Resultant Set of Policy. Each file contains only -optimized settings for a particular server; the default settings applicable for all Windows servers are provided in a separate file.
        These files should not be used with FEP management node in the Configuration Manager console. The policy files do not contain all the settings required by the FEP policy management interface, and might result in error messages when the UI attempts to parse the files.
        For information about using Group Policy with FEP, see Using Group Policy with FEP in the FEP 2010 TechNet Library.
      • Microsoft Security Support tool
        The Microsoft Security Support tool gathers support data necessary to help the Microsoft Support team to resolve support issues.
        Run the Microsoft Security Support tool on the computer running FEP that is experiencing issues (client or server).
        Send the cab file that is created to the Microsoft Support team to enable them to diagnose and resolve support issues.
      • FEP 2010 Best Practices Analyzer
        The Microsoft Forefront Endpoint Protection 2010 Best Practices Analyzer (BPA) tool scans the System Center Configuration Manager 2007 and Forefront Endpoint Protection (FEP) configuration settings to identify problematic or missing settings that may prevent optimized use of FEP.
        The tool is based on the Microsoft Baseline Configuration Analyzer (MBCA) 2.0.
        For information about installing or using the FEP 2010 BPA, see Using the FEP Best Practices Analyzer in the TechNet Library.
      • Definition Update Automation Tool for Forefront Endpoint Protection 2010 (softwareupdateautomation.exe)
        This tool enables you to automate downloading and publication of FEP definition updates using the Configuration Manager 2007 Software Update feature.
        This is a command line tool that uses the Configuration Manager API to download new definitions from Microsoft Update, distribute them to the software update point, and publish the definitions to the endpoints.
        To automate the tool, you must add a Windows task to run it automatically at a scheduled interval.
  • Supported Operating System
