Hi All,

Good Day to All......

We are using SEP 12.1 RU1 MP 1 on Win 2k8 Ent R2 Server in our environment, and recently we have applied a policy to block network cards on a Orphan machines unfortunately some of our test machines are on the same machine is on the same group, and there is a Application control policy also which will terminate all the process.

Currently client is not able to communicate with the SEPM until it communicate back to SEPM we can’t change the policy.so how to overcome this situation?

Regards

Ajin

Hello,

I would suggest you to check these Articles:

How to Export and Import a Symantec Endpoint Protection client policy

http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH190053

Before importing a policy, make sure the source computer's version of Symantec Endpoint Protection matches the computer's version you are importing to.

Note: You can migrate the source computer to a newer version before exporting the policy to avoid this problem.
