This problem occure because same hardware id are available in another system.

If you prepare Image os you can follow this steps

Hi,

Q. Why this problem occurs after using Image OS? Also, can anybody please suggest any method by which this problem can be avoided in further PCs installation?

--> Each SEP client will have unique hardware id, if SEP is a part of clone image then same hardware id will be copied on each machine and result in duplication of records.

Duplicate Hardware IDs result in only one client showing up in the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager for multiple systems

http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH97626

In some cases duplicate entries in the embedded database (DB) exist for a computer even after formatting.

To overcome this problem Symantec has given guidelines to follow:

SEP 11.x: Configuring Symantec Endpoint Protection 11.x client for deployment as part of a drive image

http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH102815

SEP 12: How to prepare a Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1 client for cloning

I hope it helps.

This issue is occured because of using the Cloning/ Image disk which has been created after installed all the application included symantec.

Reason of this issue is that when you can install the image on different system avail hardware Id is getting mismatch and Communication b/w client and server is getting stop.

can anybody please suggest any method by which this problem can be avoided in further PCs installation?

I have created one file for my office use which is use while creating the image and it really helpfull in my Branches. Find the attach file "Image Disk Creation.docx"

Hi

Mainly this happens due to imaged systems.

Hello,

Cause: There are two causes for this issue:

Current Theory: The first possible cause for this is when an Endpoint has been re-imaged (whether in a virtual machine or on a physical system).

Things we know: Each installation of Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) randomly creates a "Unique Identifier" for the client. So if this changes and the re-imaged system checks in, it is recognized as a new client.

Example: The IP and computer name are the same, yet the database still shows a different Unique ID.

The second cause for this is related to an issue with moving clients to a different OU in Active Directory.

Duplicate Endpoint Protection client IDs occur if the base image was not prepared for cloning. For more information, read the article How to prepare a Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1 client for cloning.

However to Resolve this issue, check these Articles for SEP 12.1: -

How to repair duplicate IDs on cloned Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1 clients

http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH163349

Duplicate SEP clients appear in the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager console

https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/articles/duplicate-sep-clients-appear-symantec-endpoint-protection-manager-console

To prevent this from happening, I would recommend you to prepare your clients before cloning /image, check this article:
