This issue has been solved. See solution.

Now I am running SEPM11 RU6 MP3 On Win Server 2003 with SQL Server 2005.

Can we directly upgrade from SEPM 11 RU6 MP3 to SEPM 12.1 RU2 ?

Q. Can we directly upgrade from SEPM 11 RU6 MP3 to SEPM 12.1 RU2 ?

--> You can upgrade from SEPM 11 RU6 MP3 to SEP 12.1 RU2

You should check thir article prior to upgrade

SEP 11.x to SEP 12.1 Upgrade process graphical overview

Supported upgrade paths to Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager 12.1 from Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager 11.x

Supported upgrade paths for the Symantec Endpoint Protection client

In case you see SEP 12.1 RU2 available for download then it might be in English Edition only.

For local languages you might have to wait for few more days. (Probably till 30th Nov'12)

For suites you might have to wait till December'12.
