Unlocking server groups in Symantec System Center

If you do not unlock server groups before migration, unpredictable results may occur. Also, if the roaming service is enabled for clients, the unlocking the server group helps ensure that the clients properly authenticate to a parent server. Clients that properly authenticate to a parent server get placed in the database. Clients that get placed in the database automatically appear in the correct legacy group in the console after installation.

To unlock a server group

  1. In the Symantec System Center, right-click a locked server group, and then click Unlock Server Group.

  2. In the Unlock Server Group dialog box, type the authentication credentials if necessary, and then click OK.

See Migrating from Symantec Client Security or Symantec AntiVirus.
