Upgrade path from SEP 12.1 RU1 MP1 to SEP 12.1 RU2 MP1

Created: 12 Apr 2013 | 6 comments

As I still do not start to upgrade to SEPM 12.1 RU2, now the SEP 12.1 RU2 MP1 is released.

 

1. Can I directly upgrade SEPM from 12.1 RU1 MP1 to 12.1 RU2 MP1? If no, what is the best path?

   ( upgrade SPEM 12.1 RU2 first without reboot; then upgrade to RU2 MP1 ?)

2. As does not mention about the reboot for upgrade, does it require to reboot for upgrading SEPM server or SEP client?

Hello,

1. Can I directly upgrade SEPM from 12.1 RU1 MP1 to 12.1 RU2 MP1? If no, what is the best path?

   ( upgrade SPEM 12.1 RU2 first without reboot; then upgrade to RU2 MP1 ?)

It is important to understand that SEP 12.1 RU2 MP1 is a maintainance patch and could be applied only over SEP 12.1 RU2.

Upgrading or migrating to Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1.2100 (RU2 MP1)

2. As does not mention about the reboot for upgrade, does it require to reboot for upgrading SEPM server or SEP client?

When Migrating the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager a Reboot of the machine is not required, however when you migrate the Symantec Endpoint Protection client to the Latest version, a reboot may be required.

Hope that helps!!
