Table: Process for performing disaster recovery



Step 1

Reinstall Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager using a disaster recovery file.

By reinstalling the management server, you can recover the files that were saved after initial installation.

See Reinstalling or reconfiguring Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager.

If you reinstall Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager on a different computer and without using the disaster recovery file, you must generate a new server certificate.

See Generating a new server certificate.

Step 2

Restore the database.

See Restoring the database.

See Preparing for disaster recovery.

See the knowledge base article: Perform a disaster recovery when the database backup/restore process fails using the "Database Backup/Restore Wizard" for an Embedded Database.
