Dear Team,

I am going to upgrade the Server from 11.7 mp1 to 12.1 ru2 because it is compatible for Windows 8. Is it directly upgraded or any other installation?

Hi

Yes you can directly upgrade from SEP 11x to SEP 12.1 RU2.

Note: When you are upgrading clients restart is mandatory.

Hi

You can upgraded directly from 11.7 mp1 to 12.1 ru2. But i preffered you that firstly try it on test enviornment before install on production.

Take the backup of DB before upgradation.
