Mac AD/LDAP members do not appear correctly in OUs imported into Endpoint Protection Manager
Last Updated June 19, 2015
The Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager allows integration with AD (Active Directory) or LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) so that Endpoint Protection clients can be viewed and managed by AD/LDAP OUs (Organizational Units). Windows clients appear correctly in OUs imported into the SEPM, but Mac or Linux clients appear in only in the SEPM "default" group or other SEPM-defined group.
Mac computers that are AD/LDAP members may not appear correctly in SEPM imported OUs.
This is by design. As of SEP 12.1 RU6, Mac and Linux SEP clients may only be managed using SEPM-defined groups.
Mac and Linux SEP clients that are AD members can be managed by the SEPM but must be managed by using SEPM-defined client groups rather than imported OUs.
