Simple answer: SAV 10 does not use sylink files and can't be managed by the SEPM.

yes, the architecture is different. SEP 12.1 uses web server. Just replacing sylink on sav doe not make it connect to SEPm and download the package.

2) What are steps to upgrade SAV Clients 10.* to SEP 12.1.

SOLUTION
Vikram Kumar-SAV to SEP's picture

SAV 10.x - Symantec Antivirus

SEP 11/12.x - Symantec Endpoint Protection (Includes Antivirus, Host Firewall, HIPS,App & Dev Control,TruScan etc)

So its not just Architecture but SAV was just simply antivirus but SEP is complete Endpoint Solution for Endpoints.
