Introduction:
By default, installing the endpoint agent using the client.msi package in a GPO will install all endpoint modules (Microsoft Outlook Agent,  File System Agent, Print System Agent and Network Agent).
Is there an option to be able to install individual modules?
Background:
You may need to install the Microsoft Outlook Agent, then in the future, maybe another module. The goal is to reduce possible impacts on endpoint.
Environment:
Installing via Group Policy by using MSIEXEC property commands.
Instructions:
MSIEXEC property commands are used to add and remove endpoint components.

ADDLOCAL= will add endpoint features
REMOVE= will remove endpoint features

Endpoint features that can be added/removed for each component:
OutlookClient – for Outlook integration
NotesClient – for Lotus Notes integration
PrintSystemClient – for printing devices
AppMon – for application monitoring
ContentRegistration – enables the use of content registration (fingerprinted) file databases in policy
FileSystemClient – for USB/removable and fixed disks
ClientAdminExtensions – for admin console
DataExtensions - for DMC console.

So for example you could run the following: Msiexec /i client.msi ADDLOCAL=OutlookClient REMOVE=FileSystemClient,PrintSystemClient,NotesClient.AppMon.ContentRegistration.ClientAdminExtensions.DataExtensions /qn

This would only add the Outlook Client.
