"The size of the exported client installation package has been reduced" it refers to the sizeof the package   for auto upgrade and not for the exe or the msi that is created.

I am new to Symantec and installed a SEP server with MR4 and updated all the clients to version 11.0.4202.75. If I need to move to MR5 11.0.5002.0 should I be upgrading the server to that version  before I push it out to the clients? Could any one clarify this for me?

First upgrade SEPM to RU5 and then upgrade the clients
