Endpoint Manager upgrade
Hello to all,
We are currently running SEP version MR5 and plan to upgrade to version 12.1. I have 2 questions:
- We are finally deploying Windows 7 computers to our network and have started with just a few machines. Because the supported version for this OS is MR7 we'd like to create and deploy a SEP MR7 package. Can we have MR7 packages/clients deployed with the SEP Mgr still being on MR5? (We plan on migrating to 12.1, don't want to spend time on upgrading this server if we don't have to.
- For long term solution we will move to 12.1. Should we do inplace upgrade of the existing server (Windows 2003 32bit) or move over to a brand new server? If we do a brand new server is the process just to build a new SEP environment and if so...will the client deployments automatically overwrite the existing client settings with the new Mgr server as the management server?
Thanks for advance for any input.
