Dear,

In SEP 11 we have this feature, upgrade the cleints by setting the target IP or PC name.

I could not find this hidden fearture in SEP 12.1 - can some one guide me? 

I want to upgrade my remaining clients to SEP12.1 since these clients are already under SEP11

 

Thanks,

I have some clients which are already under 11, when I upgrade clients as per your attached documents, it is asking me to select a group, however the clients from SEP11(SEP11 Manager installed in a different Computer)  ofcourse are not listed in the SEP12 group.

Do I need to add the clients first to the group or how to accomplish this?

Thanks,

APK

if the clients are already managed and reporting to SEPm, use the auto upgrade feature

If No Please use Syslink replace tool and move all system to sep 11 to sepm 12.1 and after you can use Autoupgrade fature.

My issue is I have a few clients left in the SEP11 server. Your article describes how to maintain the communication to new server after the client installation. 

Kindly advise me how to push the new package from the new server to those old clients(there are only few clients left)
