I am migrating our Symantec Endpoint Protection from 11 to 12. I will be installing on a new 2008R2 server as our current SEP is a 2003 server. My question is regarding the upgrade process, do I install the same version of the current SEP on the new server and then upgrade or do I install the new SEP version on the new server and somehow find a way to migrate all clients.

Unfortunately we do not have SEP support a the moment. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Maybe this will help.

To start fresh with a new install of the SEPM 12.1.x on a new server, for example, use the Communication Update Package to connect existing clients, both 11.x and 12.1.x, to the new SEPM. The Communication Update Package can be deployed in the same way as clients: Home > Common Tasks > Install protection client to computers. After they are connected, the SEP client can be installed using AutoUpgrade.

To connect existing clients to a new SEPM without sending a full installation package, see:

For version 12.1.2 and later, see: Restoring client-server communications by using a client installation package.

For versions earlier earlier than 12.1.2,  use the SylinkDrop tool for the appropriate client version (11.x or 12.1). The SylinkDrop tool can be found in the Tools > Sylink folder in the Tools product disc, or from Technical Support.
