How to update client to new SEPM Server

Created: 26 May 2011 | 2 comments

We had Endpoint SBE Manager installed on a 2003 Server, and Endpoint clients deployed on workstations in a workgroup environment.

The Server died and we replaced it with a 2008 R2 Server, and re-installed Endpoint Manager.

How do we get the clients to communicate again with the new Server?

You should have the Same IP Address and Server Name as of the old server.

If you have a Embedded Database:

>You will be able to achieve this only if you have copied the Server Private Key Backup folder and a recent back up done.

>Goto the Backup and Restore Wizard and do a restore of the database.

>Go to Admin Tab -> Server -> Click on the server name -> Click on Manage Server Certificate

>Import the Server Private Key file (.jks)

>For the other two fields open the Server.xml file and find for "KeystorePass", Copy the value and paste it for both fields.

>Run the Managment Server configuration Wizard.

>The clients must start to communicate.

If you have a SQL Database

>Get the copy of Server private key backup folder from the location

C:/Program files/Symantec/Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager/Server Private Key Backup

>Run the Managment Server configuration Wizard.

>Point the wizard to the SQL database -> sem5

>Update the Server Private key the same way given above.

>The clients must start to communicate.
