You can download the latest SEP client version from file connect and install on all Windows8 systems.

After that replace the sylink file with current server to manage client by server.

Dont upgrade SEPM to 12 Ru2...Only upgrade client to latest one.

You need to add 12 RU2 package on SEPM...then use auto upgeade feature of SEPM for upgradation.
