Log data is not backed up unless you configure Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager to back it up. If you do not back up the logs, then only your log configuration options are saved during a backup. You can use the backup to restore your database, but the logs in the database are empty of data when they are restored.
You can back up the database immediately, or schedule the backup to occur automatically. You can back up an embedded database or a Microsoft SQL Server database that is configured as the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager database.
To back up the database and logs
On the computer that runs Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager, on the Start menu, click All Programs > Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager > Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager Tools > Database Back Up and Restore.
To back up the database and logs from within the console
