You have multiple Endpoint Protection Managers (SEPM) in your environment but only want certain ones used by SEP clients
Adding a management server list
If your enterprise has multiple Symantec Endpoint Protection Managers, you can create a customized management server list. The management server list specifies the order in which clients in a particular group connect. Clients and optional Enforcers first try to connect to Symantec Endpoint Protection Managers that have been added with the highest priority. If Symantec Endpoint Protection Managers with the highest priority are not available, then clients and optional Enforcers try to connect to management servers with the next higher priority. A default management server list is automatically created for each site. All available Symantec Endpoint Protection Managers at that site are added to the default management server list with the same priority.
If you add multiple Symantec Endpoint Protection Managers at the same priority, then clients and optional Enforcers can connect to any of the Symantec Endpoint Protection Managers. Clients automatically balance the load between available Symantec Endpoint Protection Managers at that priority. You can use HTTPS protocol rather than the default HTTP for communication. If you want to secure communication further, you can customize the HTTP and HTTPS port numbers by creating a customized management server list. However, you must customize the ports before clients are installed or else the client-to-management server communication is lost. If you update the version of the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager, you must remember to re-customize the ports so that the clients can resume communication.
After you add a new management server list, you must assign it to a specific group or location or both.
See the "Assigning a management server list to a group and location" section below.

Assigning a management server list to a group and location
After you add a policy, you need to assign it to a group or a location or both. Otherwise the management server list is not effective. You must have finished adding or editing a management server list before you can assign the list.
