This issue has been solved. See solution.

When SEPM send a command to its clients to upgrade version it uses a exe file. Does SEPM support the environment where SCCM(System center configurution manager) is running? Any issues?

Actually SEP 11.x is running on the environment where microsoft SCCM is also running. Now I want to migrate SEP (both SEPM and SEP clients) from 11.x to 12.x.

You can do it, I havent heard of any issue as such. However for client just make sure proper exclusions are set as mentioned in above article.

...from the SEPM level you can export either .exe install packages or .msi.

Hello,

Yes. It does support.

Process for installing the client using Microsoft Systems Management Server

Step

Description

Step 1

Create a software installation package with Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager that contains the software and policies to install on your client computers. Additionally, this software installation package must contain a file named Sylink.xml, which identifies the server that manages the clients.

Step 2

Create a source directory and copy Symantec client installation files into that source directory. For example, you would create a source directory that contains the installation files for Symantec client software.

Step 3

Create a package, name the package, and identify the source directory as part of the package.

Step 4

Configure the Program dialog box for the package to specify the executable that starts the installation process, and possibly specify the msi with parameters.

Step 5

Distribute the software to specific Collections with Advertising.
