How to Reset the Hardware ID Automatically
we had an issue when we depolyed our corporate image to 22 desktops. the image had the symantec client installed on the desktops. i was adviced by Symantec that i need to
Delete %programfiles%\Common Files\Symantec Shared\HWID\sephwid.xml
Open the registry and navigate to HKLM\Software\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection\SMC\Sylink\Sylnk
Edit the "HardwareID" value data to be blank
before taking the image but for some reason the clients still had the same ID.
on the manager i can't see them although i can see the green dot and all of them are getting the update.
is there a tool i can use to reset this automatically? scripting is not a good idea as this registry entry does not allow the clients to modify it.
