You will need to open a case with support to get the latest Cleanwipe version, which will remove the version you installed on the server.

Hi,

You can install sep12.1. on Windows server 2012 and if you are not able to uninstall the sep from the server then please run latest clean wipe on the server, I hope clean wipe will be uninstall the same.

To receive this tool you need to contact Symantec Support.

SEP/SEPM 12.1 ru2 give you full support for both Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8 as well.

Ru2 is the only supported build for 2012 and Windows 8. If you have managed to get any other build installed you are going to have issues and I would recommend obtaining a copy of cleanwipe as mentioned previously.

If I was able to help resolve your issue please mark my post as solution.

Hello,

Is SEP 12.1 and SEP Client is supported on Windows 2012?

Yes, Only SEP 12.1 RU2 onwards supports Windows 2012 OS.

We have installed the SEP 12.1 client on Win 2012 server but copatibility issue and now we are not able to remove the software

This could because you are running the older version of SEP 12.1.

Migrate the current version of SEP 12.1 to SEP 12.1 RU2, check this Article:

Latest Symantec Endpoint Protection Releases - SEP 12.1 RU2 and SEP 11.0 RU7 MP3

and

Hi,

 

I would advise you to install only AV/AS (Anti-Virus & Anti-Spyware) and PTP (Proactive Threat Protection) on your Windows Server 2012 with SEP 12.1 RU2.

You should be fine with that.

There is a new version of CleanWipe way more easier to use and way more nicer than previous version.

Easy to run, you can pick what you would like to remove (SEP client software only or Windows LiveUpdate or Management Servers or all of them depending your needs and recommendations).

If you need it, log a case to the support.

 

Kind Regards,

A. Wesker
