This issue has been solved. See solution.

SEP 12.1Ru1Mp1 - After creating the fingerprint list , running the system lockdown in testmode - gathering all applications and then enabling lockdown,

How do I add a new application that was never part of the fingerprint list .

Do I move the machine that has the new app to a test group >> set it log >> wait for the unapproved app to show up (which log can I find this ? >> add the list to approved list of applications or am I supposed to re0run the checksum.exe and then merge it with the older fingerprint list.

If I have to merge it - can I do it on the fly or should I move the policy to test mode and then update the list and then move it back to system lockdown?

Hello,

Yes, Even though the Article was meant for SEP 11.x, the same Article would be assisting you with SEP 12.1 as well.

Hope that helps!!
