Upgrade from SEP 11.0.5 to SEP 12.1 AND move to new server...
I'm currently preparing to upgrade SEP 11 AND move it to a different server. I'm hoping someone can guide me through this scenario. Here are the basics:
We're currently running SEP 11 (v11.0.5002.333) with embedded database on an aging Win 2k3 Domain Controller. In the end, I want to have SEP 12.1 with embedded database running on a new Windows 2008 R2 vsphere VM server that is not a DC. We have about 125 client PC's with very few remote systems.
I see a few options. I'm wondering which is recommended:
- upgrade the installation on the existing 2k3 server to SEP 12.1, then move the installation to the new 2k8 server.
- move the installation from the existing 2k3 server to the new 2k8 server, then upgrade it to SEP 12.1 after it's moved.
- remove it from the old 2k3 server and start over from scratch on the new 2k8 server.
- any other suggestions?
Thanks in advance!
