For SEP 12.1 there is new sylinkrepalcer tool.
To get that tool you will have to call symantec or log a web case.

Below is the link to download the SylinkReplacer for SEP 12.1

password is Symantec (lowercase)

 I tested it using a SEP 12.1 client which was not communicating with the SEPM and is was successful.

It bypasses the SEP 12.1 tamper protection.

I understand that calling the Symantec Support Guys for the tools is the correct way of doing things.

My apologise for posting the link to get the SylinkReplacer 12.1, I was just trying to be helpfully for those poor guys who don't call Symantec Support Guys  to get these kind of tools.

I removed the link. Troy, please do not post our tools for download. Only Symantec Support has the authorization to provide these tools.
