We just upgraded our SEPM and SEP agent on the SEPM to RU6. We notice now that the service for the SEP agent is now called "Symantec Endpoint Protection" . I know that the SEP agent (RU4mp1) usually runs SMC.exe ...what is the new executable as when the check the properties of the service for SEP it shows as running a .dll file.Looking at the task manager , there is no SMC.exe displayed
Any ideas ?
I also now notice that the registry entries that were there previously (displays - GUP, username, last date etc).
has also disappeared. I only see under the SMC key - version and SEP Master service. Where has this gone?
This was changed back in RU5 to use the ccsvchst only:
Also, as far as the reg information goes, this is all still in the same place. Have you checked the SEP hive under the Wow6432Node (assuming you're playing with a 64bit Windows installation)?
Yup this was new in 12.1.5
The Symantec Management Client (smc.exe) service is no longer listed in Windows Services
We have both 32bit and 64bit installations(Win 7 and 8.1). Will have a look.
Can you provide the exact location of this?
So on my 64bit Win8.1 box with 12.1RU6 I have:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection\LiveUpdate]
This contains the GUP info (same place as before).
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection\SMC\SYLINK\SyLink]
This contains the user/group type info
Thanks for the information. Much appreciated.
