Hello,

Yes. SEPM 12.1 RU3 are compatible and can manage SEP 11.x clients without any issues.

A Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM) with version 12.1 can successfully deploy, administer and update SEP 11 clients, if necessary.  This mixture of versions is usually a temporary condition as endpoints in the organization are upgraded to SEP 12.1.  In the case of Windows 2000 Server or Windows 2000 Professional endpoints, it may be necessary until computers running the legacy OS are retired.

However, It is always recommended to migrate the SEP 11.x client to the Latest version of SEP 12.1 RU3.

Hope that helps!!
