This issue has been solved. See solution.

I dont see anywhere to register the unmanaged client. I was under the assumption that in 12.1 you had to start putting registration into the client.

 

Please advise on where to put in the license, or if it is needed.

Hi,

Licensing an unmanaged client

To enable the submission of reputation data from an unmanaged client, you must install a paid license on the client. Use the following procedure to install a license on an unmanaged client.

To license an unmanaged client

  1. Locate and create a copy of your current Symantec Licensing File (.SLF).

    Use the same file that you used to activate your license on Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager.

  2. On the client computer, place the copied license file into the Symantec Endpoint Protection client inbox.

    • On the clients that run on a pre-Vista version of Windows, the inbox is located at:Drive:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection\CurrentVersion\inbox

    • On the clients that use Vista or a later version of Windows, the inbox is located at: Drive:\ProgramData\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection\CurrentVersion\inbox\

    If the license file is invalid or the license installation failed, a folder named Invalid is created and the invalid license is placed into the folder. If the file is valid, it is automatically removed from the inbox after it is processed.

  3. To verify that you applied the license correctly, check that no files appear in the inbox folder.

  4. Check that the .SLF file is in either one of the following folders:

    • For the clients that run on a pre-Vista version of Windows: Drive:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection\silo_identification\Data\Config

    • For the clients that run on Vista or a laster version of Windows: Drive:\ProgramData\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection\silo_identification\Data\Config

You can also include the .SLF file as part of a third-party deployment package.
