Hello,

We have our main site and its replication partners on SEP11 RU7 MP2, but clients are SEP11 RU7, and RU6a.  Everything is working fine.  We have Mac workstations as running SEP client in managed mode.

Should we upgrade to SEP12? If yes, what should be path, as there seems to be some issues with supported paths?

Please guide as I am planning to test.

Thanks and Regards,

Hello,

SEP 12.1 has lot of advantages. Check this Article:

What's new in version 12.1

http://www.symantec.com/docs/HOWTO55189

Secondly, I would request you to check this Thread: 

https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/forums/migrating-sav-10x-sep

Again, in reference to the Migration Path, check these Articles:

Supported upgrade paths to Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager 12.1 from Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager 11.x

http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH192779

Supported Upgrade paths to Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1

http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH163514

In other words, you could migrate the SEP 11.0.7202 to SEP 12.1 RU1 and then to SEP 12. RU1 MP1

OR 

from SEP 11.0.7202 to SEP 12.1 RU1 and then to SEP 12. RU2 (yet to be released).

I would also recommend you to check this Thread: 

https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/forums/migrate-11x-clients-12x-after-new-install-sepm-12x

Hope that helps!!
