Switching to the current domain

The default domain name is Default, and it is set as the current domain. When you add a new domain in the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager console, the domain is empty. To add groups, clients, policies, and administrators to a new domain, you must first set it as the current domain. When a domain is designated as the current domain, the text Current Domain follows the domain name in the title. If you have many domains, you must scroll through the Domains list to display which domain is the current one.

If you logged on to the console as a system administrator, you can see all domains no matter which domain is the current one. However, you can only see the administrators and limited administrators that were created in the current domain. If you logged on to the console as either an administrator or a limited administrator, you only see the domain to which you have access.

If you remove the current domain, the management server logs you out. You can only remove a domain if it is not the current domain and not the only domain.
