This issue has been solved. See solution.

So,

Latest version of SEP 12.1.2015

 

In the Client tab, right hand side, Policies. Define your Heartbeat interval. I define one for each location, you dont need to tell a client thats outside to phone home every xxx minutes, to cut down on the chatter. So i wish to seperate out Heartbeats for inside and outside..Whenever i make a change to one, it reflects on the other...What am i missing here...Hopefully nothing obvious...

Testing out a few things and it works in 11.x for example I can set One location to have Heartbeat XX and another Location to have Heartbeat YY

You need to break inheritance on the groups so you assign individual policies/settings.

Brian- thanks for the reply (appreciate it)

I did this initially, as this SEPM group will house MAC systems. So PI has been removed..

By doing this, you can change settings on one group without affecting the others.

You still can do it - under each location -> Setting for Location Internal or External go under Location specific settings -> Communication Settings: Group Pull -> and here you can set up the heartbeat for each location separately.

Thats probably the way you do it - there is only one thing missing to it:

- first click on the Communications setting (under each location) -> Tasks and deselect "Use group communications Settings" - this will allow to set each location separately

Glad to help :D I admit this option could have been placed in a more intuitiv/visible spot on the GUI.
