Issue



You have several Symantec Endpoint Protection Managers (SEPMs) in your environment, with some of them interconnected (by replication or sharing the same database). You have received a new Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1 license file for the whole environment, and would like to know what to do with it.

 


Environment



Let's consider as "Group" any independent SEPM or SEPM array. Here is an example:

 - Group A => SEPM1 and SEPM2 are in replication
 - Group B => SEPM3 and SEPM4 are sharing the same single database (failover/load-balancing)
 - Group C => SEPM5 is stand-alone

 


Solution



You need to import your license file on one SEPM for each group (for instance: SEPM1, SEPM3 and SEPM5).
You just need to ensure the number of seats in your license file cover the number of SEP clients managed by all SEPMs (SEPM1 + SEPM2 + SEPM3 + SEPM4 + SEPM5).
