When working with location management in Symantec Endpoint Protection you have one of the following questions:
- How does the "default location" setting work?
- Why is the Symantec Endpoint Protection client not switching to the default location?
- How do I create location criteria so that only one location can match at the same time?
The default setting come in to play in two situations:
The SEP client will not switch to a location that matches, if it is already inside a different locations that also matches. This is to avoid excessive jumping from location to location, and applies even if one of the two locations is set to default.
To create unambiguous location criteria where only one location can match at any one time, use the following strategy.
Without the second criteria (in italic) both locations could match at the same time, making a client stay in location B even if location A is set to default.
