Is anyone having issue packaging and deploying Symantec AV v.14.2?
I used composer to build the pkg and it doesn't work on my client computers.

Are there any errors in jamf for that policy, or any log files symantec writes to? Is it installing and not running, failing to install?

@supersizeal Is there a reason you are not just using the Remote Deployment Packaging Tool Built into the installer?

I checked the logs on the installation of one of the client and it said it was installed without any errors but the App is not on the HD.

What is that Create Remote Deployment Package and how do I use it? I created a Create Remote Deployment Package under Tools but the pkg is only 43.8 mb and the one I made from Composer is 5.28 GB.
What am I doing wrong?

Thanks for your help!

@supersizeal The package when created through the Tool sounds to be about the correct size. When I create mine its about 46.6MB. When creating it through Composer, its putting all the files in place. When using the SEP Tool, the installer is compressed.

Try deploying the package created via the SEP Tool and see if all works as you expect.
