Definition updates for roaming users
This is an interesting question raised by a customer ad i thought it’d be ideal if I can get a clear picture from this forum. This client is having over 50 branch office around the country. Assuming if we have implemented SEP11 in the main office and then branch offices and setup SEPM in branch offices. Now we will configure the branch offices to get the updates from the SEPM in the Head Office and also from the Symantec web sites.
But for the Desktop Pc’s it’ll only the SEPM in their office only. For the laptop users we want to create a customer live update policy and include all the SEPM servers IP address t get the updates, this is assuming if they visit the branch office their SEP client will get the updates fro that SEPM near to them. Now the true question is will SEP client will be smart enough to identify the nearest SEPM and pull the updates or will he always go for the first SEPM server mention in their policy regardless of their location? What my customer really want to accomplish is laptop SEP client should be able to contact the nearest SEPM server and pull the updates rather than going for the head office all the time if that laptop belong to head office.
