Resolution

Symantec Protection Engine (SPE) 7.0.3 was released after SPE 7.5.0 and the migration path from 7.0.3 to 7.5.0.34 is not supported. For SPE 7.5.0, You need to upgrade from 7.0.2 or the earlier.

Unless otherwise mentioned, any new release, which is version-wise older (such as SPE7.0.3) is unsupported for migration to any early-released and version-wise newer build (such as SPE 7.5), as the latter often times is built with the older internal components.

See the following product release details:

which are listed in the order of release date.
