Hi folks,

I have some doubt which is eating my memory from few days, i have installed symantec protection manager server and deployed  managed clients which i can manage clients from console

few machines i have installed unmanaged clients and  placed licence file to the correct path everything is working fine, but what my question is how does unmanged clients will contact to symantec protection server bcoz i cant see unmanged client in manager.In these case how licences are managed

suppose if i have 30 clients licences and installed 30 clients as managed client and if i installed extra systems as unmanaged clients and placed licences file to the path it does not give any error also it just takes

Unmanaged clients will not talk to SEPM. There are not visible inside SEPM.

License you update on sepm will have count ,like 25 users license, 35 users license.

on a  single endpoint u will individual licenses. That would still work if you place it. but its more over on Trust :)

please refer to this discussion

For SEP 12.1 unmanaged client licensing is required. If we install unmanaged client Sonar, IRON and other new features do not work. 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.
