You can use the same license file. As long as you don't go over the total client count, you will be within compliance.

Hello,

Check this Thread with similar issue:

https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/forums/licensing-v1213-sepm#comment-8939181

Let's consider as "Group" any independent SEPM or SEPM array. Here is an example:

 - Group A => SEPM1 and SEPM2 are in replication
 - Group B => SEPM3 and SEPM4 are sharing the same single database (failover/load-balancing)
 - Group C => SEPM5 is stand-alone

You need to import your license file on one SEPM for each group (for instance: SEPM1, SEPM3 and SEPM5).

You just need to ensure the number of seats in your license file cover the number of SEP clients managed by all SEPMs (SEPM1 + SEPM2 + SEPM3 + SEPM4 + SEPM5).

Reference:

http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH164392

As per the Article HOWTO80852A Symantec Endpoint Protection license applies to the Symantec Endpoint Protection clients. For instance, in a network with 50 endpoints, the license must provide for a minimum of 50 seats. Instances of the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager do not require a license.

A Symantec Endpoint Protection product license is applied to an entire installation regardless of the number of replicated sites or domains that compose the installation. For instance, a license for 100 seats covers a two-site installation where each site has 50 seats.

If you have not implemented replication, you may deploy the same .slf file to multiple Symantec Endpoint Protection management servers. The number of clients reporting to your management servers must not exceed the total number of licensed seats.

If you are planning to upgrade or migrate to Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1.3, please take a look at the latest how-to article created by our very own SEP content council team.

However if SEPM's are not connected to each other in any regards then need to contact license department to have multiple license file as per the number of clients per site.

Hi

You can use the same license file as long as the count does not increase
