-- After upgrade will Existing SEP 11 client communicate with 12.1. we have 500 of remote sites & will not upgrade SEP11 client for a period of time.

                                                             OR

-- If we install the new SEP 12.1 version,  Will the new SEP 12.1 will communicate & gets updates, policies from SEPM 11.x old version.

A: All SEP 11.x client can be managed from 12.1 SEPM - so this configuration is fine.

                                   

-- If we install the new SEP 12.1 version,  Will the new SEP 12.1 will communicate & gets updates, policies from SEPM 11.x old version.

A: This configuration would be not recommended. Connecting 12.1 clients to the older 11.x SEPM can cause only issue. Please keep the SEPM on the same version or higher as SEP client connecting to it.
