Configuring a separate purge interval for offline non-persistent VDI clients

Over time, obsolete clients can accumulate in the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager database. Obsolete clients are those clients that have not connected to Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager for 30 days. Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager purges obsolete clients every 30 days by default.

If you do not want to wait the same number of days to purge obsolete non-persistent clients, you can configure a separate interval for them. If you do not configure a separate interval, then offline non-persistent VDI clients are purged at the same interval that non-virtual obsolete clients are purged.

Note:

Online non-persistent clients count toward the number of deployed licenses; offline non-persistent clients do not.

You can also filter the offline non-persistent clients out of the view on the Clients page.

To configure the purge interval for offline non-persistent VDI clients

  1. In the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager console, on the Admin page, click Domains.

  2. In the Domains tree, click the desired domain.

  3. Under Tasks, click Edit Domain Properties.

  4. On the Edit Domain Properties > General tab, check the Delete non-persistent VDI clients that have not connected for specified time checkbox and change the days value to the desired number.

    The Delete clients that have not connected for specified time option must be checked to access the option for offline non-persistent VDI clients.

  5. Click OK.
