Moving SEP 12.0 from machine 1 to machine 2
We are planning to move SEP to another machine. Browsing the Connect forum I had already found an article containing step by step explanations to perform such a move.
However, using the replication method — which is stated to be the faster solution — I could not locate the Install additional site option in the Management Server Configuration Wizard as stated in the article. The article does mention it to be a solution for the Endpoint Protection 11.0 release. So I guess Symantec has revoked this option from this newer release, or haven't they?
We were told that Symantec's Endpoint Protection would be the best choice considering its alleged low system resource usage. We tested the 11.0 release and initially were quite pleased with it. At time of purchase SEP 12.0 had just been released and considering some forum posts, relating to better use of system resources, we had ordered this version. It was later found out that SEP 12.0 was actually not the follow-up to SEP 11.0, which I think is quite misleading.
Not only has 12.0 been bereft from the option to disallow users to disable network protection, it really does consume a lot of system resources. Therefor whe want to move it to a different machine so that it will use less resources from the main file-server.
Could anybody help me with this?
