Upgrading SEP management console to latest version on new hardware
I would like to upgrade our current SEP management console (12.1.x) to the latest version. I would also like to move the SEP management console to new hardware.
Is it OK to install the latest version of the SEP management console on the new hardware (using existing license) essentially creating a side-by-side deployment and then use a customized package deployment scenario created from the upgraded SEP installation to gradually deploy the upgraded client software to the client machines? After all the client machines are upgraded and pointing to the new SEP installation, the older SEP management console and server hardware will be decommissioned.
Is this an approved method?
