HI,

Are you want to move SEP 12.1 Client to SEPM 11.X Server ?

SEPM 11.x not be manage sep 12. client .

If you are not upgrade your sep client you can use syslinkreplacer tool for moving sep client.

Thanks In Advance

Hi,

SEP 12.1 clients can not be managed by SEPM 11

It's a downgrade process so first you will have to uninstall SEP 12.1 client.

Why do you want to downgrade the clients? Why you are using both the versions in the same organization?

Hi,

As I said earlier SEPM 11.x can not managed SEP 12 clients if they are on SEP 12.1 version.

Can't user Sylink replacer in your case.

Uninstall & reinstall is the available option.

Hi,

If clients are still on SEP 11 version then there is no issue.

Simply replace sylink.xml on the existing SEP clients and point them to the new SEPM.

i use SylinkReplacer to only SEP 11 client.

and this "SylinkReplacer1.3" this is for ver 11?

and when i use some client can discovered but some client cannot discovered.

For a client cannot discovered, i solve by reinstall SEP.
