... as for the installation path go for the latest SEP 12.1 RU4 that supports direct migration from 11 RU6.

Migration overview:

Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager When you upgrade the management server, the installation automatically detects and configures it appropriately.

You do not need to uninstall management servers before you install the new version. The overinstall process saves your settings, and then upgrades to the latest version.

Symantec Endpoint Protection
Clients

When you upgrade a client, the overinstall automatically detects the client, and upgrades and installs it appropriately. You do not need to uninstall existing clients before you install the new version.
