When first connecting to the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM) each client receives a license/seat. In the database this seat is associated with the Hardware ID’s. If you re-image a computer and install a new SEP client, the client will receive a new Hardware ID. At this point the same computer is consuming two licenses.
Symantec Manager home page license status shows as "overdeployed."
Windows Server 2008 R2 Std
SEP 12.1 RU1 MP1
Clients that do not connect to the SEPM will be removed (purged) from the database according to the settings configured in database properties.
If you have old/offline clients in the SEPM, set the option “Delete clients that have not connected for XX days.” down to 1 day, then wait for 24 hours.
In SEP 12.1 RU1 the the option to Delete clients that have not connected for X days has been moved to:
- Choose the Domain you wish to configure the setting for
- Under Tasks, click Edit Domain Properties
- On the General tab you should now find the option
Previously, in SEP 11.0.x and SEP 12.1 the option to Delete clients that have not connected for X days is located at:
- Click on localhost
- Under Tasks, click on Edit Database properties
- On the General Tab under the Database Settings heading
