Upgrade SEPM 11.x to 12.1.2 with a fresh install
I have a SEPM 11.x server which use SQL database on a remote server to host our database of our 3000+ AV Clients. I want to install SEPM 12.1.2 on a completly new Windows Server 2008 R2 (The current server is Windows 2003). The fact is that I don't want to upgrade the current server to SEPM 12.1.2. I would like to start a fresh new database but by keeping the current sites configuration, policy etc.
I know that I can import one by one each of my policies. But I would like to know if there is a way to start from fresh then import the complet current configuration to the fresh installed server.
I found this acticle http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH104389 which look good, but in that way I'm force to install the version 11.x on the new server then upgrade to 12.1.2. I will use that solution if there is no simple way to achieve it they way I would like to.
Let me know if i'm not clear or some details are missing.
