Issue: Hard to understand what Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1 File needs to be Downloaded from Symantec FileConnect website

Solution:

Please Download the below Installation files incase a Full DVD version is needed.

1) Symantec_Endpoint_Protection_12.1_RU1_Part1_Installation_EN.exe

2) Symantec_Endpoint_Protection_12.1_RU1_Part2_Tools_and_Documents_EN.exe

Symantec_Endpoint_Protection_12.1_RU1_Part1_Installation_EN.exe includes all the Installation of

SEPM 12.1RU1 , SEP 12.1 RU1 (32 bit) , SEP 12.1 RU1 (64 bit), SEP MAC 12.1 RU1 , SEP Linux 12.1 RU1

whereas 

Symantec_Endpoint_Protection_12.1_RU1_Part2_Tools_and_Documents_EN.exe includes Tools and Documents for SEP 12.1 RU1

The other installations like below are single installations provided for convenience, so that they can be downloaded easily and seperately as per necessity (compared to the above full download)

The Full Download size is on a higher side, so incase you don't need the Entire DVD version, then you could download part of the Symantec Endpoint Protection Software as well.

Symantec_Endpoint_Protection_12.1_RU1_Win32-bit_Client_EN.exe 12.1 RU1   =  Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1 RU1 Client (Win32-bit)

Symantec_Endpoint_Protection_12.1_RU1_Win64-bit_Client_EN.exe 12.1 RU1   =  Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1 RU1 Client (Win64-bit)

Symantec_Endpoint_Protection_12.1_RU1_SEPM_EN.exe 12.1 RU1                 =  Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager 12.1 RU1

Symantec_Endpoint_Protection_12.1_RU1_Mac_Client_EN.zip 12.1 RU1           =  Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1 RU1 MAC Client

Symantec_Endpoint_Protection_12.1_RU1_Linux_Client_EN.zip 12.1 RU1         = Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1 RU1 Linux Client

Help, I cannot seem to find where to download this.  I just purchased the SEP and downloaded that just fine.  Is the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager a separate purchase?  If not, where do I download?  Thanks for any help.

Similar issue I face. Downloading from File Connect fails. Java installed is the last vesion available.

Download of selected files starts successfully but then ends (fails) quickly.

What could be the reason for all that?

Hello,

There is no version of SEPM 64 bit.

The Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM) is a console which is intelligent enough to check itself and install itself on any type Operating System (32 bit / 64 bit)

Hello,

SEP 12.1 is not supported on solaris 64 bit file/app server.

SSE (Symantec Scan Engine) is the product for you if you have a NAS or Solaris box.  It is desigend for fast, high-volume file scanning.
