Issue



With SAV 10.x going End of Life on July 4th 2012, will a new build of SEP support Itanium processors?

 


Solution



As Microsoft plans to discontinue support for Itanium Processors in future builds of their Operating Systems, Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) will also phase out support for Itanium processors.

Only Symantec Antivirus 10.1 MR6 and newer (including Symantec Antivirus 10.2 MR2 and newer) will retain support for Itanium processors.  Come July 4th 2012, the SAV 10.x definitions will no longer be supported.
