Failover is used to maintain communication with a Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager when the management server becomes unavailable. Load balancing is used to distribute client management between multiple management servers.
You can set up failover and load balancing if you use a Microsoft SQL Server database. You can set up failover with the embedded database, but only if you use replication. When you use replication with an embedded database, Symantec recommends that you do not configure load balancing, as data inconsistency and loss may result.
