It is always recommended that you migrate the SEPM and Clients from the SEP 12.1 RTM to SEP 12.1 RU1 and then to SEP 12.1 RU1 MP1

SEP 12.1.671 >> SEP 12.1 RU1 >> SEP 12.1 RU1 MP1

Yes, the clients would be able to report back to the SEPM without any issues upon migration.

1) New fixes and features in Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1 Release Update 1 Maintenance Patch 1

http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH187656

2) Upgrading or migrating to Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1.1101 (RU1 MP1)

http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH187753

NOTE:  About Migration paths

Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1.1101.401 (RU1 MP1) can migrate seamlessly over the following:

Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1.1000.157 (RU1)

Hope that helps!!

Thanks....

Hi,

You are suggested to take a backup prior to upgrade.

http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH160736

There is no method/option to roll back SEPM/SEP version.

You will have to perform disaster recovery in that case.

Hi,

Thank you for the sugestion. I would like also to ask the compatibility issue of SEP 12.1 with other Applications.

I also experience that SEP blocks some software. It will not allow the application to run. Do SEP have a list for software that has compatibility issue with other softwares? and how to solve those issue? thank you

Hi,

SONAR might make false positive detections for certain internal custom applications. Also, if you disable Insight lookups, the number of false positives from SONAR increases

You can change SONAR settings to mitigate false positive detections in general. You can also create exceptions for a specific file or a specific application that SONAR detects as a false positive

Handling and preventing SONAR false positive detections
