Uninstall 32-bit version of SMSDOM. However, you may retain the SMSDOM databases during this process.
If Symantec Endpoint Security (SEP) or Symantec AntiVirus is not installed on your computer, ensure that virus definitions of the earlier 32-bit version of SMSDOM are deleted.
These virus definitions are located in the Symantec Shared\VirusDefs folder on Windows and in the /opt/Symantec/virusdefs folder on AIX.
