SMLatCST's picture contact Symantec Suport on this issue.

It sounds as if your SEP clients have had password protection enabled to prevent software removal, and that you do not have the oassword.

Depending on how they were originally configured, you may be able to repoint the existing SEP Clients at your new SEPM Server using SyLinkReplacer (again available from Symantec Support), but it won't work if password protection on the ability to stop the SMC service is also enabled (and you don't have th password).
