Upgrading an environment that uses multiple embedded databases and management servers

Migrating an installation instance that uses multiple embedded database and management servers has the following implications:

  • No failover or load balancing is performed because the embedded database does not support failover or load balanced servers.

  • The management servers are configured for replication.

All sites have a computer on which you first installed the management server. Only one of these management servers was installed with a license and a preshared secret. You must migrate this management server first. You then migrate the other management servers that were installed for replication.

To upgrade an environment that uses multiple embedded databases and management servers

  1. On all management servers, disable replication.

    See Turning off replication before upgrade.

  2. Authenticate to and log on to the computer that contains the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager that was installed with the license and preshared secret.

    Do not log on to the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager.

  3. Migrate the management server.

    See Upgrading a management server.

  4. Migrate all additional management servers one by one.

  5. After you migrate the servers, enable replication on each server.

    See Turning on replication after upgrade.
