Manually updating a file fingerprint list in Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager

You might want to update your file fingerprint lists after you run system lockdown for a while. You can append, replace, or remove entries in an existing file fingerprint list. You cannot directly edit an existing file fingerprint list in Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager.

Note:

You can also export an existing file fingerprint list.

If you want to merge fingerprint lists into a new list with a different name, use the Add a File Fingerprint Wizard.

See Importing or merging file fingerprint lists in Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager

See Configuring system lockdown
