Hi, i'm using Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager 12 RU4 MP1 for manage clients with SEP11 and SEP12, but it doesn't update some components (see the attachment) for example SONAR scan engine Win32 11.0. Is it normal ? Where is SONAR Scan engine for the version 12 ? Is it the SONAR Heuristics engine 12.1 RU2 ?
