    How to Migrate PGP desktop client 10.3 to SEE client. I have machines with PGP client 10.3 with a PGP encryption server 3.3. Now I am doing POC for SEE 11.0.1. I have generated a package for Drive encryption from SEE 11 server and copied onto the machine which has PGP desktop client installed. I executed the .msi file I am getting Symantec encryption is already installed. Now I would like to know 1- How do I migrate the PGP desktop client to report it on SEE 11 server or to migrate to SEE client. 2- Do I need to generate a different client package for migration of PGP desktop clients 10.3 MP8. 3- Please provide the link for latest documents for SEE11 admin guide and migration documents. Please advise. Thank you Regards, Sajjad Khatib

    There is no direct migration path from Symantec Encryption Desktop 10.x to Symantec Endpoint Encryption version 11.0.1.  This is being addressed in the next Endpoint Encryption major release, 11.1.0.

    Currently, you would need to decrypt the system, then you should be able to utilize the Symantec Endpoint Encryption v11.0.1.  You don't need to uninstall the Symantec Encryption Desktop, but for SEE drive encryption to function, SED (PGP) drive encryption must be out of the picture.  Also, you must have the Management Agent Client installed before you can install the Drive Encryption Client.

    Landing page for SEE v11 is here for documentation:

    There is a section in the SEE v11 manager that you can link to your existing Symantec Encryption Management Server that will store the WDRT's for the PGP clients on the SEE server.  That is the only integration between servers thus far.

    I wrote a couple articles for setting up SEE v11 here:
    https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/articles/symantec-endpoint-encryption-1101-initial-server-configuration
    https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/articles/symantec-endpoint-encryption-1101-management-server-installation

    The install guide is here:
