This issue has been solved. See solution.

I need to disable the firewall, browser and network intrusion on my clients, whilst still having my policies work. How do I do this?

How to add or remove features to existing Symantec Endpoint Protection client installations

That article works for version 11.x For version 12.1, it doesn't give you the option to select a feature set, only "Full Protection for Clients" "Full Protection for Servers" "Basic Protection for Servers". See below.

Unless there's something I'm doing wrong...

You should create a new one..then u will be able to see the list...

are u using small business edition or enterprise one?

OK..let me try that. Then I just re-deploy it to the already managed clients? And that will work?

I'm using Enterprise version. And I've created a new one but I don't see the options there as well. See attached.

You first need to add one client feature set under 


install packages

then go to clients

click on client packages , select add; u will get to add the first one.

Uncheck MAINTAIN EXISTING PACKAGE, frm the drop down menu u can the one u created.

Thank you. I've managed to create a new feature set. I'm testing the deployment on a set of test machines. I should run it as an upgrade as i did the first time right?

It seems "The client decided to reject the upgrade package" , "Client has ignored upgrade package, version 12.1.671.4971.".

This is one of the test machines.

whats the version it has ? RU7 ? or SEP 12.1 only right?

if u push from the migration and deoployment wizard, does that install or it rejects too?

SEP 12.1. It eventually worked. The clients all upgraded. Monitoring it now.
