Enable NIC error
When this option is enabled, the Symantec Management Agent for UNIX, Linux, and Mac will report an error when the client computer's host name and IP address are not the same as reported by DNS.
You can view the NameServ Error in the Symantec Management Console, in the Resource Manager, at View > Inventory > Data Classes > Inventory > Basic Inventory > AeX AC TCPIP > DNS Server 3.

Enforce hostname verification for HTTPS connection
When this option is enabled, the Symantec Management Agent communicates with a host using HTTPS only if that host's name matches the name in the host's certificate.
