This article describes how to create new client installation packages using the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM) console.

For example, SEPM 12.1.2 (RU2) comes with a legacy Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) 11 client that can be deployed to older Windows 2000 and Macintosh computers that cannot run SEP 12.1.  If you need to upgrade these clients to the latest release of SEP 11, the package for the latest SEP 11 Release Update (RU) must be imported into SEPM 12.1.

  8. Click Open.
