Hece we have decided to start a new blog to keep it more updated.
Here it goes: https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/blogs/symantec-endpoint-protection-release-details
Needs updated for the RU5 release please.
It's now updated.
I will request the thread owner to update with this info.
The zero-day patch/version (12.1.4112.4156) should be added to this listing.
I've done the same. And its confusing because in the versions.txt in the download it states:
SEP Client Version 12.1.4104.4130
SEPM Version 12.1.4104.4130
SIS Version 12.1.4104.4130
But it never adds new packages for distribution during the update.
I also tried installing an unmanaged client from the "DVD", and it still states version 12.1.4100.4126
Please stop confusing your customers... :)
RU4 MP1a did not contain updated client patches. RU4 MP1a was released to address the Heart Bleed vulnerability which is a server side issue.
I've upgrade SEPM to 12.1.4104.4130 (RU4 MP1a), but I didn't see any new packages. Is it normal ?
Where can I find SEP Client RU4 MP1a Client-Only Patch, if exists ?
New fixes and features in Symantec Endpoint Protection and Network Access Control 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11a
Hi, what's new in RU4 MP1a ?
this appears to be missing 12.1.4a for SEPM
May as well wait for the latest version, RU4
I am now deciding to either to upgrade my clients from SEP 12Ru1 ro Ru3 or must I wait for Ru4??
Is SEP 12.1.4 releasing in October on schedule ??
There has been no mention on an official date.
Any information when the next release will be available? The one after 12.1 RU3.
Thanks for Sharing
Check this document - it says 7.1 sp1a starts support for SEP 12.x
Does IT Analytics Symantec Endpoint Protection Report Pack support Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.x?
You can find the release details about SEP products under this link:
Just select the version you are interest in and check the dates.
Unfortunately, I am not aware of the next major releases to come, but I am sure this information will be shared once some dates are known.
As for the NetBackup, you should ask that question on NetBackup forum.
May I know if Symantec IT Analytics is availabe for the below version?
Awesome......Really good Article.
This is great, exactly what I was looking for.
1. When will Symantec stop supporting v12.x?
2. Is there any word on when the next major release (i.e. v13) will be released?
3. Is there a similar table for the NetBackup releases?

Article URL http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH204859
Time to update ! SEP 12.1 RU2 MP1 is out !
The last section, labeled SEP SBE 12.1.x, should be removed. It repeats the SEP EE 12.1.x info from the top, but adds an incorrect "SBE" to its heading.
SBE versions are in the form "12.0" and SBE information is listed just above this.
Thanks for your views.

Regarding RU2 (support for window 8), how is it installed on a SEPManager 12.1 (12.1.1101.401)? Via liveupdate? Or any other process?
Edit: It seems that the page was updated in the last 5 minutes. It is official the release RU2. So, How to obtain it and update from 12.1 RU1 MP1 to RU2?
waiting here as well guys....
one week to go.. :-o
SEP 12.1 RU2 will release with Product notes till Nov 17 2012.
When will SEP 12.1 RU2 be released? I have seen some information that says it is coming out today, but no real confirmation.
Direct migration to RU1 MP1 from this version is not supported. What you need to do, is first to migrate to 12.1 RU1, and then as a second step of migration - migrate to 12.1 RU1 MP1. I tried to explain the supported migration paths here:
You don't have to perform manual migration - you can do it remotely. Here are couple of usefull documents:
Upgrading or migrating to Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1.1000 (RU1)
Upgrading or migrating to Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1.1101 (RU1 MP1)
Additionally, if you are interested, you can see the remote installation process:
If you have further migration questions or issues - I would suggest you to open a new thread in the forum (so it can be easily followed) or open a case with Technical Support.
I hope your migration will go smoothly :)
We have pan india support and i want to upgrade my clients from MR4 MP2 to SEP 12.1 RU1 MP1.
Is that possible? and those clients are across india though which method i can upgrade clients instead of doing manually.
Yes, I hope that too as well.
Hopefully the new release of SEP would be less issue for most endpoints.
Ah ok, thanks for the calrification then.
There is no official date for the release. You may see the Release of SEP 12.1 RU2 happening anytime this year.
When is the nextSEP 12.1 RU2 released?
Letest SEP version sepm SEPM 12.1 RU1 MP1
Next SEP 12.1 RU2 Official date yet not announce.
What is the latest release of SEPM client 12.x?
There are some links in symantec whcih refers to SEP cleint 12.5, is there any client with this version? Please assist.
sorry for the late answer. The direct upgrade from 12.1.671.xxx to 12.1.1101.xxx is not supported.
Here I explained why migrations to "MPs" are suppored only from its "RU" version:
I hope that clarifies more.
Didn't get notice of the 12.1 RU1 update, but I did for the RU1 MP1, can i go directly from Version 12.1.671.4971 to Version 12.1.1101.401, skipping the Nov update? . Also so I need to download the full base product and inline update parts 1 and 2 to complete this upgrade along with the client updates?
Migrating to Symantec Endpoint Protection 11.0.7200 (RU7 MP2)
Upgrading or migrating to Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1.1101 (RU1 MP1)
SEP 12.x have more features hence you may think of upgrading to SEP 12.
What is new in Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1?
Migration from MR4 MP2/ RU6 MP2 to latest RU7 MP2 and SEP 12.1 RU1 MP1 is supported ???
Which one is best among two ???
Also i am having a PAN india support which take a time of 2-3 months for migrations which is handled by 4 SEPMs indiviually.
Manager has usually the same version as client, so when next to the version is not specified - the version is for both - SEP client and SEP Manager (SEPM).
So, the last SEPM versions are:
11.x - 11.0.7101.1056
12.0.x - 12.0.1001.95
12.1.x - 12.1.1000.157
Which is the latest manager version??
added new release to the list (12.1.1000.157)
Added 12.1 to the list
These are 2 separate products, so fixes for RU7 will not apply on SEP 12.1. However, it may happen that the issue will not be present on the SEP 12.1 because of different architecture.
Would RU7 fixes be incorporated in SEP 12.1?
We can expect RU7 soon - probably in July (still do not know official date)
There is no public announcment on the date RU7 will be available. Stay tuned, as soon as it is out, I will post back here.
When is the official release date for RU7...
woh great news !!! RU7 could be very useful who all are using lower versions....:-)
wow, many thanks for the explanation, I'll just wait until the RU7 comes up probably around june-july :-)
The general supported migration steps I explained in this document:
General supported migration paths of Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM)
It is not said that the migration will not work. However, the migration from MR4 to RU6 MP3 was not tested so it might cause some unknown issues. As I explained in the above document, MP is a Maintenance Patch for a certain MR or RU version, so this is like a patch for the major release.
There is RU7 release in plans (no official date yet, it should be this summer on the market). Direct migration from your version to RU7 will be supported.
I hope my explanation was clear enough.
To All Symantec experts,
Why there is no direct upgrade from the older version into the newer version in easy way ?
eg. I have 11.0.4000.2295 and I want to keep to the latest RU6 MP3 but I have to step the ladder up one by one ? this is ridiculous for any environment larger than 50 units.
Here you can find, in general, supported migration paths (direct migration from 11.0.6005.xxx to 11.0.6300.xxx is supported):
Please find below URL to download
stupid question , but where are these updates located? i m on Version: 11.0.6005
how can i go to the latest 11.0.6300.803? do you have a link that i can go read?
is updated now. Thanks
Please add version 11.0.6300.803 released 3/21/11 to your list.
There is a small mistake in the first table. The RU6 MP2 PP1 is only for SEPM (not SEP client).
Will be updated once new versions will be released
