    Is there anyway to install ForeFront for Exchange if you don't choose it
    during the initial installation?
    I have SBS 2008 installed withouth ForeFront and want to install it now.

  2. Forefront is a trial version included in the install image
    And because you only have a trial version of SBS 2008, you don't have
    additional media that will be included SBS 2008 when it becomes available
    for sale in the next 30-60 days.

    So without a reinstall, the answer is no.

    That's great. I also chose not to include it in setup. Figured I'd just
    install it later on.

    This means I can NEVER have it now, because you can't install it after the
    fact. I can't do a reinstall because we did a Migrate Install, so the
    original SBS 2003 domain and forest have been changed and can't be migrated
    again (it's a one-shot deal).

    Glad this is only my small network of 10 people (still a terrible disaster)
    and not a client with 20 or 40 users.

    This should be in block letters in the install notes or answer file tool,
    letting you know that if you choose not to install it, that's it, you're

    Ummm... I am pretty sure that when they do put it out there, you can just
    download it and install it from media?
