Issue



Is migrating from Symantec Endpoint Protection 11 Release Update 7 (RU7) to SEPM 12.1 supported?


Solution



Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager 11.0 RU7 contains SQL schema changes that are newer than the schema used by Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager 12.1. For this reason, migration from 11.0 RU7 to 12.1 is not supported, and is prevented by the installer. Migrations from 11.0 RU7 to 12.1 RU1 are supported.

Note: Though the Symantec Endpoint Protection 11.0 RU7 client can be migrated to 12.1, the 11.0 RU7 Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager cannot manage 12.1 clients. Make sure a 12.1.x management structure is in place before migrating managed clients.
