Adding and disconnecting a replication partner

If you want to replicate data with another site, you may have already set it up during the initial installation. If you did not set up replication during the initial installation, you can do so now by adding a replication partner. Multiple sites are called a site farm whenever they are set up as replication partners. You can add any site on the site farm as a replication partner.

See the Installation Guide for Symantec Endpoint Protection and Symantec Network Access Control for more information.

Also, you can add a replication partner that was previously deleted as a partner.

Before you begin, you need to have the following information:

  • An IP address or host name of the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager for which you want to make a replication partner.

  • The management server to which you want to connect must have previously been a replication partner. The management server can have also been a partner to another site on the same site farm.

To add a replication partner

  1. In the console, click Admin, and then click Servers.

  2. Under View Servers, select a site.

  3. Under Tasks, click Add Replication Partner.

  4. In the Add Replication Partner wizard, click Next.

  5. Type the IP address or host name of the management server that you want to make a replication partner.

  6. Type the port number of the remote server on which you installed the management server.

    The default setting for the remote server port is 8443.

  7. Type the administrator’s user name and password.

  8. Click Next.

  9. In the Schedule Replication pane, specify the schedule for replication between the two partners by doing one of the following:

    • Check Autoreplicate.

      It causes frequent and automatic replication to occur between two sites. This option is the default setting. Therefore you cannot set up a custom schedule for replication.

    • Uncheck Autoreplicate

      You can now set up a custom schedule for replication:

      • Select the hourly, daily, or weekly Replication Frequency.

      • Select the specific day during which you want replication to occur in the Day of Week list to set up a weekly schedule.

  10. Click Next.

  11. In the Replication of Log Files and Client Packages pane, check or uncheck the options depending on whether or not you want to replicate logs.

    The default setting is unchecked.

  12. On the Add Replication Partner dialog do one of the following:

    • If the database has been restored on the replication partner site, click Yes.

      You must restore the database on each replication partner site before you continue if you are upgrading or restoring a database.

    • Click No if the database has not been restored. Then restore the database and restart this procedure.

  13. Click Next.

  14. Click Finish.

    The replication partner site is added under Replication Partners on the Admin page.
