This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hello folks,

I've just found this great discussion:

Unfortunatley it lacks a solution for 12.1. Does anyone know a good method besides manually clearing corrupted definitions?

Is Rx4DefsSEP still working in SEP 12.1?

Thanks in advance.

The Rx4DefsSEP would not work for SEP 12.1.

I would suggest you to use the .jdb file as of now to update the definitions on SEPM as well as clients.

Check these Articles:

Also, check this Downloads

Hope that helps!!
