There is a small mistake in the first table. The RU6 MP2 PP1 is only for SEPM (not SEP client).

To All Symantec experts,

Why there is no direct upgrade from the older version into the newer version in easy way ?

eg. I have 11.0.4000.2295 and I want to keep to the latest RU6 MP3 but I have to step the ladder up one by one ? this is ridiculous for any environment larger than 50 units.

The general supported migration steps I explained in this document:

General supported migration paths of Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM)
https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/articles/g...

It is not said that the migration will not work. However, the migration from MR4 to RU6 MP3 was not tested so it might cause some unknown issues. As I explained in the above document, MP is a Maintenance Patch for a certain MR or RU version, so this is like a patch for the major release.

There is RU7 release in plans (no official date yet, it should be this summer on the market). Direct migration from your version to RU7 will be supported.

I hope my explanation was clear enough.

Would RU7 fixes be incorporated in SEP 12.1?

w-d's picture

These are 2 separate products, so fixes for RU7 will not apply on SEP 12.1. However, it may happen that the issue will not be present on the SEP 12.1 because of different architecture.

Which is the latest manager version??

Tnx

Login to vote
w-d's picture

Manager has usually the same version as client, so when next to the version is not specified - the version is for both - SEP client and SEP Manager (SEPM).

So, the last SEPM versions are:

11.x - 11.0.7101.1056

12.0.x - 12.0.1001.95

12.1.x - 12.1.1000.157

Didn't get notice of the 12.1 RU1 update, but I did for the RU1 MP1, can i go directly from Version 12.1.671.4971  to Version 12.1.1101.401, skipping the Nov update? . Also so I need to download the full base product and inline update parts 1 and 2 to complete this upgrade along with the client updates?

Hi,

sorry for the late answer. The direct upgrade from 12.1.671.xxx to 12.1.1101.xxx is not supported.

Here I explained why migrations to "MPs" are suppored only from its "RU" version:

https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/articles/g...

I hope that clarifies more.

Hi,

Direct migration to RU1 MP1 from this version is not supported. What you need to do, is first to migrate to 12.1 RU1, and then as a second step of migration - migrate to 12.1 RU1 MP1. I tried to explain the supported migration paths here:

https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/articles/g...

You don't have to perform manual migration - you can do it remotely. Here are couple of usefull documents:

Upgrading or migrating to Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1.1000 (RU1)
http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?pag...

Upgrading or migrating to Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1.1101 (RU1 MP1)
http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?pag...

 

Additionally, if you are interested, you can see the remote installation process:

https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/articles/s...

 

If you have further migration questions or issues - I would suggest you to open a new thread in the forum (so it can be easily followed) or open a case with Technical Support.

I hope your migration will go smoothly :)

Hi,

The last section, labeled SEP SBE 12.1.x,  should be removed.    It repeats the SEP EE 12.1.x  info from the top, but adds an incorrect "SBE" to its heading. 

SBE versions are in the form "12.0" and SBE information is listed just above this.

Thanks

I Really need this version for this solution:

Migration from Symantec Endpoint Protection 11.0.5 or higher to Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1 RU2 and removing Network Threat Protection causes network instability
Fix ID: 3063813
Symptom: When upgrading from a later version of Symantec Endpoint Protection with the firewall component installed to a Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1 RU2 install package without the firewall, the network may not load upon reboot.
Solution: Updated the migration mechanism for removing Teefer3 components from prior Symantec Endpoint Protection versions during the firewall uninstall.

This is great, exactly what I was looking for.

1. When will Symantec stop supporting v12.x?
2. Is there any word on when the next major release (i.e. v13) will be released?
3. Is there a similar table for the NetBackup releases?

Many thanks.

Hi,

You can find the release details about SEP products under this link:

Just select the version you are interest in and check the dates.

Unfortunately, I am not aware of the next major releases to come, but I am sure this information will be shared once some dates are known.

As for the NetBackup, you should ask that question on NetBackup forum.
