Hi Kaushal,

Supported Version information for Endpoint Protection for Windows XP Embedded 5.1

EOSL - End of Support Life on 10/15/2014

Keep in mind that the full SEP 11 is supported on XPE since SEP 11 MR2.

Final note: here is an enhancement request that you may be interested in voting for: https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/ideas/increase-frequency-updates-sep-windows-xp-embedded

Please let the forum know if this answers your questions, or if there is anything else you need!

Thansk and best regards,

Mick

With thanks and best regards,

Mick

Thanks Mick

You mentioned that full SEP 11 is supported on XPE. Does that mean i can make and deploy packages for XPE from SEPM console ? Can SEPM console manage XPE or other embedded clients ? If this can be done, i dont see any documentation so please give some links if you have handy. Thanks

Hi Kaushal,

Sure, if it is the full SEP 11, then the SEP 11 SEPM can fully manage the clients.  It can create packages, policies, etc.  The SEPM does not care if the SEP 11 clients are running on Windows XP or Windowws XPE.

The SEP 11 SEPM cannot manage "Endpoint Protection for Windows XP Embedded 5.1" clients.  That product has its own management console, etc.

Here's a good article or two:

Windows XP Embedded Support in Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) 11 vs. Sygate Symantec Endpoint Protection (SSEP) 5.1
Article: TECH91152
Article URL http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH91152

Migrating the Symantec Enterprise Protection 5.1 Server to Symantec Endpoint Protection 11.0
Article: TECH92394
Article URL http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH92394
 

One thing to remember: the footprint of resources that a SEP 11 client will need will remain the same whether it is on XP or XPE.  That can be a bit heavy for thin clients.

Thanks and best regards,

Mick
