Upgraded sepm and some sep client from 11.x to 12.1 and I noticed windows fw became enabled on some and block traffic from one of our servers. Has anyone seen this or know why?

Hi,

Check the following articles.

The Windows Firewall is enabled after migrating to SEP 12.1 using the 'Upgrade Clients with Package' feature and deploying the 'Basic Protection for Servers' install package.

Hm... in my company I usually stop or disable th WIndows firewall using GPO and then deploy the SEP client with NTP.

so does your GPO already block the firewall ?
