SEPM and SEP upgrade to MP1 from MR5

I understand that I will need to upgrade to RU6a first and then apply RU6 MP1.  My question is if I upgrade the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager to RU6a and then update that to MP1.  Can I just create client packages after the SEPM update and then push out the client package to the SEP MR5 clients?  This seems logical to me as the client packages will have both the RU6a and MP1 updates.  I have read on Symantec that clients need to be upgrade to RU6a regardless.  Thanks.

Hi,

As per the symantec website it article says:

Upgrade the Symantec Endpoint Protection Clients
You do not need to uninstall previous clients before you install the new version. The overinstall process saves legacy settings, and then upgrades to the latest version.

Title: Migrating to Symantec Endpoint Protection 11.0 RU6

I hope that would help

Yes, the is RU6 but what I am doing is applying the MP1 patch which can only be applied to RU6 and RU6a.  I will upgrade the SEPM first and when I push out the new client installs that I created from the MP1 patch, will I be able to push out the clients to RU6a MP1 since they are running v.5?
