Migration from 11.0.6300.803 to 12.1 EE
I am very frustrated. Please help!
As you can tell frmo the title, I am migrating to a new version.
SEP is physically moving from one server to another. IP and hostname are different.
I was told to use the replication method. It is not working.
I can see the new server appear as a replication partner on the old server, but it never completes.
I am follwoing the instructions here --> http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=TECH104389
I am getting stuck here:
I am doing this from the NEW server, running the config wizard, setting up the replication partner...
In the Database Server Choice panel, do one of the following, and then click Next:
Check Embedded database or Microsoft SQL server (whichever database type you'd prefer to install), then complete the installation.
It connects, builds the db, it gorws to about 290 MB and just hangs.
again, I can see my new server appear as a replication partner, and a remote site...but they do not finish replicating.
One thing I noitced is that on the old server, under remote sites, its IP is totally wrong, and I have no idea where it is comming from....both machines have a static IP, and the DNS entries are correct.... its pulliong some address from our DHCP pool, and I have no idea how that is happening.... I have looked at log files, and no useful information that I can find... can someone point me in the right direction to start troubleshooting? I am sure its a config issue somehwere, hard to narrow down seeing as communication between the 2 is working (Kinda)
