Can 1 GUP be shared between 2 seperate SEPMs. One on SEP 11 and One on SEP 12?

I say no. What say you?

No. That would mean that you would need to install a package from the 11.x SEPM and 12.1 SEPM. SO it would have 2 SEP clients on it. Not possible.

Hi,

I have to say that your answer is correct. There's no possibility that  one SEP client can be a GUP for two separate consoles.

On top of that the SEPM in the version 11.x uses IIS to communicate with the client where in 12.1.x the embedded Apache server is used.

In the scenarion you've described two separate SEPM consoles, running two different versions = 2 separated databases...

And in the end... both of the SEPMs would try to modify the same registry key on the client site to set it as a GUP- they would probably fail wink

I hope this answers your question.

Regards,

Drl

One Liner :

GUP and SEPM should be of same version. so Only one is possible.

There is no such possibility - this would involve sharing the SEP Client on this GUP between two separate SEPM (and in your example even with two different version) - and this is not possible.

While I agree that a GUP cannot be shared across the different SEPMs you mentioned, I disagree as to the reasons everyone else has cited.

You can use SEPMs, Clients, and GUPs of different versions.  See the below article to confirm this:
http://www.symantec.com/docs/HOWTO80957

The reason why it wouldn't work, is because they are of two separate SEPM environments.  The GUP and the SEP Client must be talking to the same SEP environment in order for them to work together.
