This is not possible.

You can set password protection for the SEP client but there is no setting for just a one time deal.

There is no way to set one time password. You can set the fix password from server to clients which can use to stop service every time

Hi,

Thank you for posting in Symantec community.

I would be glad to answer your query.

As everyone said there is not any one time password or code to disable SEP without network connectivity.

If there is active connection between SEPM and SEP clients then you can configure passwords to SEP clients.

Check these articles:
