About installing and configuring the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager for failover or load balancing

Failover and load balancing configurations are supported in Microsoft SQL Server installations only. Failover configurations are used to maintain communication when clients cannot communicate with a Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager. Load balancing is used to distribute client management between management servers. You can configure failover and load balancing by assigning priorities to management servers in Management Server lists.

See About failover and load balancing.

Load balancing occurs between the servers assigned to Priority 1 in a Management Server list. If more than one server is assigned to Priority 1, the clients randomly choose one of the servers and establish communication with it. If all Priority 1 servers fail, clients connect with the server assigned to Priority 2.

Note:
The management console is installed when you install a server for failover or load balancing.

Installing and configuring servers for failover and load balancing is a two-part process. First, you install a Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager on a computer and add it to an existing site. Second, you log on to the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager console, and configure the new Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager.
