Using Symantec Endpoint Protection in non-persistent virtual desktop infrastructures

You can configure the Symantec Endpoint Protection client in your base image to indicate that it is a non-persistent virtual client. You can then configure a separate purge interval in Symantec Endpoint Protection for the offline guest virtual machines (GVMs) in non-persistent virtual desktop infrastructures. Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager removes the non-persistent GVM clients that have been offline longer than the specified time period. This feature makes it simpler to manage the GVMs in Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager.
