If the Symantec Endpoint Encryption Management Server wizard does not automatically, you can manually start the SEEMS Configuration Wizard by running the SEEMS Configuration Manager to set up your directory service synchronization and configure the Web service.
Note:You must complete the wizard before you can synchronize your directory services and create your client installation packages. You can use the SEEMS Configuration Manager to change these settings later.
If the SEEMS Configuration Wizard does not launch automatically after the installation wizard has completed, you can also manually start the wizard by running the SEEMS Configuration Manager on the Symantec Endpoint Encryption Management Server.
Configuring the Symantec Endpoint Encryption Management Server includes the following steps:
Directory service synchronization lets you keep the database current with the information in your directory services. This synchronization lets you use the Management Console to apply policies according to your organization's directory Organizational Units and containers.
Use the Directory Service Synchronization Options page to select the directory services to synchronize with the Symantec Endpoint Encryption database.
If you choose to synchronize your directory service, the Directory Service Synchronization Configuration page is displayed.
Use this page to enter the configuration details about your Active Directory (AD). You can add additional or exclude domains from synchronization.
Configuring the Active Directory synchronization
To enter Active Directory configuration details:
To exclude domains from synchronization:
If there are domains within your AD forests that do not contain Symantec Endpoint Encryption client computers, you can improve performance and usability, by excluding these domains from being synchronized.
To add or remove Active Directory forests to synchronization:
The SEEMS Configuration Wizard is used to configure the communications between the Symantec Endpoint Encryption Management Server and the client computers. You set the protocol and the port that will be used for communication.
Note: If you intend to use SSL, then you also provide the communication certificates. See the article “About configuring TLS/SSL communications for Symantec Endpoint Encryption”. TECH225339
To configure the Web service:
Note: Once these steps are complete, see article HOWTO101989 for how to verify the installation of Symantec Endpoint Encryption.
