Client Install packages are exported from a new SEPM.
The packages are successfully deployed to new machines.

Packages are also deployed to machines with older SEP versions of a different SEPM.


The clients are migrated to the new version but still connected to their old SEPM and group.


The existing client-server communication settings have been maintained and not reset or overwritten.

6. Click OK to save the settings.

7. Export the Client Install Packages
