Endpoint 12.1 RU2 ?

Created: 04 Oct 2012 • Updated: 19 Nov 2012 | 35 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

After working for a kopple of days with Symantec technical support we came to the conclusion that the migration from 11.0.7 mp2 -> 12.1 RU1 is not supported.

They adviced me to wait for 12.1 RU2.
Does anyone has an idea when this version will be available?

Thank you,

LEVD

There is no official date for the release. You may see the Release of SEP 12.1 RU2 happening anytime this year.

As of now, the SEP 12.1 RU2 is under BETA testing.

"There is no SEP 12.1 RU1 MP2, instead it is going to be SEP 12.1 RU2" I know this, thats also what i wrote down :)

Ok, i guess we just have to wait for its final release.

Thanks!,

12.1 RU2 is due out some time this month as mentioned briefly at the bottom of this Symantec KB article:

https://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?pa...

There is a code-based fix due out for this in SEPM in SEP 12.1 RU2 (Jaguar). To be released in October 2012 

Also mentioned on this Idea thread by Symantec:

https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/ideas/fix-...

This is resolved in SEP 12.1.2 due out later this month (October 2012).

Whether anyone has noticed or not yet, I ran Windows 8 upgrade assistant and found out that 12.1 RU1 isn't compatible with Win 8 Pro. Now I have to wait until November to upgrade. Just wondering why Symantec couldn't align the RU2 release to Microsoft launch.

I can see only SEP 11.0.7 MP3.

i had called Symantec licensing cengter about the SEP 12.1.2, and was told "no set date yet". also check out the release information on Symantec web site, cannot find the release date.

There are lots of KB about SEP 12.1.2 on the Symantec web site, but no release date.

Hi,

At Fileconnect is only the Engish Version aviable.

When do you publish the German RU2?

Hi,

In case you see SEP 12.1 RU2 available for download then it might be in English Edition only.

For local languages you might have to wait for few more days. (Probably till 30th Nov'12)

Thanks In Advance

Hi John,

I dont know what you mean, this week i will start migration from 11 to 12.1 ru2.

About this thread: Symantec support made the download available by generating a temp key for me.
With normal license keys the download was not yet available.

Thanks,

LEVD

I can't call since it's the weekend. Will the trailware download of R2 work as an upgrade, or do I need to call and get a temp key?

pete_4u2002's picture

temp key is to download the software. However you also need to have license file for activating the software license. The trial will work for 30 days if i remember correctly.

Ed R's picture

Will the trailware download of R2 work as an upgradeto my fully licensed R1 install???
