Enabling local authentication on the Integrated Enforcer

With local authentication enabled, if the Integrated Enforcer loses its connection with the client on which the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager is installed, the Integrated Enforcer authenticates clients locally. In this case, the Integrated Enforcer considers the client a valid user and only checks the client's Host Integrity status.

Note:

If the Integrated Enforcer does not lose its connection with the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager, it always asks the management server to verify the client's GUID regardless of whether local authentication is enabled or disabled.

To enable local authentication on the Integrated Enforcer

  1. In the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager Console, click Admin.

  2. Click Servers.

  3. Under Servers, select and expand the group of Integrated Enforcers.

  4. Under Tasks, click Edit Group Properties.

  5. In the Settings dialog box, on the Advanced tab, check Enable Local Authentication.

  6. Click OK.
