How To





Prepare for legacy migration from within the Symantec System Center

Perform the following tasks to prepare your legacy installation for migration:

  • Disable scheduled scans.

    The migration might fail if a scan is running during migration.

  • Disable LiveUpdate.

    Conflicts might occur if LiveUpdate runs on the client computers during migration.

  • Turn off roaming service.

    Migration might hang and fail to complete if the roaming service is running on the client computers.

  • Unlock server groups.

    You may encounter unpredictable results if you migrate from Symantec AntiVirus before you unlock the server groups.

  • Turn off Tamper Protection.

    Tamper Protection can cause unpredictable results during migration.

  • Uninstall and delete reporting servers.

    Uninstall the reporting servers, and optionally delete the database files.

For additional technical information, see your Symantec legacy virus protection software documentation on the following product pages:

You can also adjust the migrated group settings and policy settings after you import them.
