I know there is a new feature on SEP 12.1 ......MP1 to uninstall some third party security software. If I use that option , will SEP 12.1 uninstall SEP 11.5... then install itself ?

if you install SEP 12.1 successfully  then it will remove the SEP 11 after restart of the client machine,

Hi,

Third party removal feature is introduced in SEP 12.1 RU1 MP1.

This feature can not remove SEP, it will remove supported products only.

Go through the following article to learn more about it.

https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/articles/work-progressdo-not-publish-sep-121-ru1-mp1-third-party-product-removal-feature

To remove SEP can use unsupported utility i.e. competitive uninstaller. This utility can remove the SEP and install it again.

Hi,

You can use autoupgrade feature don't need remove old sep Client

Upgrade clients to SEP 12.1 by Auto upgrade feature

http://www.symantec.com/connect/articles/upgrade-clients-sep-121-auto-upgrade-feature

Create new package with this setting and then push out

create the package as per this document

http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=TECH93617

select this 

Under Upgrade settings, select Remove all previous logs and policies, and reset the client-server communication settingsand then click OK.

Thanks In Advance

It's really confusing Pete said "if you install SEP 12.1 successfully  then it will remove the SEP 11 after restart of the client machine"

Cheten said  : Third party removal feature is introduced in SEP 12.1 RU1 MP1.This feature can not remove SEP, it will remove supported products only.

 I've no communication with my new SEPM(12.1.......MP1) and previous SEP clients (11.0.5........). What actually I should do ?

Or Check my previous comments you can use autoupgrade featue.

Thanks In Advance

you need to upgrade, right? i mean remove SEP 11 and install SEP 12.1, then my statement should hold true

Fariduzzaman's picture

Ok so If I install SEP 12.1 ........MP1 (where SEP 11.0.5 .....is running  ) I don't have to remove SEP 11.0.5 ?

pete_4u2002's picture

yes, manually you need not to do anything software will automatically take care :-)

SOLUTION

Yes , It's automatic Upgrade and remove old sep client

But i think you have already upgrade

Check your comments another thread https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/forums/critical-situation

I've to install SEPM 12.1 on a server. And uninstall SEPM 11.0.5..from another server.

I've to also upgrade the clients SEP version,where SEP 11.0.5 is running.
