Migration from SEPM 11.0.5002.333 to 11.0.7000 (RU7)

Created: 12 Sep 2011 • Updated: 13 Sep 2011 | 8 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

had some quick questions on this migration. I have reviewed the migration document

http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?pag...

Will my clients that are on version 11.05 still be able to be managed by my SEPM server that is now upgraded to 11.0.7? I know I need to upgrade the clients but while I'm working on that I wanted ot make sure they can still be manged.

 

How do you upgrade your install packages? Or is it best to just create new install packages with version 11.0.7?

 

Thanks for your help!

---Yes RU7 SEPM can manage SEP RU5 Clients.

---There are 2 ways for that:
   1, if you upgrade the SEPM  the new packges get added automatically, this is a part of the update procedure
   2. Or you can manually export the new RU7 package in SEPM

Mithun,

 

Will that work if I have both 32 bit and 64 bit clients in the same groups?

Hello,

Yes, It would work with both 32 bit and 64 bit clients in the same group.

You would have to assign both type of packages to the same group.

That would help you!!
