Issue



You created a backup of Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager database and you upgraded Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager to a newer version. You are having problems with the current database and you want to know if you can restore the database from the previous version?


 


Solution



When restoring a Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager database, it is required that you restore the database from the same version of Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager as changes are made to the database structure such as an updated schema. After upgrading Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager, it is necessary to create a new backup specific to that version.

Examples of backup and restore:

Backup > Restore
SEPM STM > SEPM STM

SEPM MR1 > SEPM MR1

SEPM MR1-MP1 > SEPM MR1-MP1

SEPM MR2 > SEPM MR2

SEPM MR2-MP1 > SEPM MR2-MP1

SEPM MR3 > SEPM MR3

SEPM MR4 > SEPM MR4

SEPM MR4-MP1 > SEPM MR4-MP1

SEPM MR4-MP2 > SEPM MR4-MP2

SEPM RU5 > SEPM RU5

SEPM RU6 > SEPM RU6
