Installing an unmanaged client

Unmanaged clients do not connect to Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager. In most cases, unmanaged clients connect to your network intermittently or not at all.

You or the primary computer users must maintain the computers. This maintenance includes monitoring and adjusting the protection on the computers, and updating security policies, virus definitions, and software.

See About managed and unmanaged clients.
