SEPM 12.1 parent child server senario

Created: 31 Oct 2012 • Updated: 31 Oct 2012 | 9 comments

Hello All,

I am having SEPM 12.x server installed at my HQ. I want to installed the SEP clients on one of my remote branch office which connected through HQ by site to Site VPN. I want to create the Parent child server environ ment where my remote client will take the update from the child server. Also please let me know is there any license needed while setting up the two management server or the one which I have allow me to configure this scnario?

Thanks in advance

 

Thank and regards

Hello Pete,

I am able to configure the GUP for SEPM and it is working fine. Only one concern is that is SEP 2013 support GUP because we recently upgrate our license from SEP 12.1 to SEP 2013

Thanks
