EMS Administration Guide

Deployment

You can use FortiClient EMS to deploy FortiClient on endpoints that are part of an AD server. This does not apply to Chromebooks. Deploying FortiClient from FortiClient EMS requires the following steps:

  1. Preparing the AD server for deployment
  2. Deploying FortiClient on endpoints

After you deploy FortiClient on endpoints and endpoints connect to FortiClient EMS, you can update endpoints by editing the associated profiles.

You can also use FortiClient EMS to uninstall and upgrade FortiClient on endpoints that are part of an AD server.

You cannot use workgroups to deploy an initial installation of FortiClient to endpoints. However, after FortiClient is installed on endpoints and endpoints connect to FortiClient EMS, you can use workgroups to uninstall and update FortiClient on endpoints.

You cannot use FortiClient EMS to deploy an initial installation of FortiClient (macOS) to endpoints. However, after FortiClient (macOS) is installed on endpoints and endpoints connect to FortiClient EMS, you can use FortiClient EMS to uninstall and update FortiClient (macOS) on endpoints.
