SMA & DLP Agent Integration Behavior
This document describes the various scenarios you can encounter when deploying the Symantec Management Agent or the Symantec DLP Agent in your environment when both agents may be present.
Recently we had an issue which resulted in millions of bad events being produced on our Altiris servers because of the automatic integration & registration of the 2 agents. Because we were not using the DLP IC we had to figure out a way to stop the integration from occurring and prevent the DLP Agent info events from being generated during a Basic Inventory from the SMA.
Because of this integration, we had to perform Scenario 1 & 3 to properly split the 2 agents and prevent DLP events from being sent to our Altiris servers.
