Symantec Endpoint Encryption has the ability to manage each of the computers that check in with the server. There are cases where systems are no longer in the directory, and in these cases, they are automatically removed. There are other scenarios where systems may not be removed and stay in the database until the systems age to 1, 2 or 3 years without checking in--this can happen if you repurpose the machine, and give it a new name. The SEE Management Server will still manage these systems and there is an option to clean systems out if they haven't checked in for 1, 2, or 3 years. This Feature Request is to include the ability to have more granular control to delete machines in the SEE Management Server.
A Feature Request has been submitted for the ability to remove individual machines, and in a more granular way aside from the 1, 2, or 3 year requirement.
