"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
The typical configuration of the SEPM is that the SEPM will "remember" what clients have attached to it for up to 60 days after they stop checking in before they are deleted and the license is scavenged and made available for redeployment.
When a newly deployed client first checks in, it will receive its license from the SEPM, and then connect to Symantec servers "in the cloud" to request its Client Authentication Token (CAT). Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1 associates the CAT with the client ID value (the "Hardware ID") that individually identifies a specific client. If a client receives a new Hardware ID, it will be treated as a new client, and thus must receive a new CAT.
