Move DB backup file to other location?

Created: 14 Jan 2008 • Updated: 22 May 2010 | 1 comment

Our server is getting short of disk space and I have done some adjustments to SEPM according to instructions provided in this forum. I have also taken backup of the SEPM DB and it takes about 1GB of space from system partition. I would like to move this backup file to other partition (or removable media). Is there any problems or things to consider if I do this?

Thanks in advance!

This should be fine. I've not performed a test restore yet, but according to the Administration Guide (pg.292) you will be prompted to select a backup to restore. At worst, you would have to copy the zip to \Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager\data\backup beforehand.
Hope this helps.
