Created: 18 Jan 2013 | 5 comments

Hi All,

Currently we are running two SEPM servers with version 11.0.6.  We can called these servers as A & server B.

We are planning to install new windows 2008 R2 server & configured SEPM v12.1. We can called as server C.

Server A & B having around 1500 SEP clients running with version 11.0.6.

I need correct & easiest steps to move these clients to newly configured SEPM  v12.1 with all existing configuration .

Thanks in advance!

If on the new server you will  be installing SEPM 12.1 RU2 you can use the 'Communication Update Package Deployment' and push the communications settings to all the existent clients and this way connecting them to the new SEPM - it won't get any easier I suppose:

I think replication can be one of the easiest option.

But go through this note as well:

Note: Replication is an option, if you do replication and remove the old server that is the Primary SEPM, in future if you want to do replication you will not be able to do so.
