Moving SEPM from 2003 to 2008 R2 server

Created: 22 Nov 2012 • Updated: 22 Nov 2012 | 4 comments


I'm looking for an "how to" to move my SEPM version 12.1 from a 2003 server to a 2008 R2 server (and reconnect all SEP clients) . I'm using the symantec enbemded DB and i red it wasn't possible to use SEPM replication to proceed. Is it true ? Is it possible to import database backup ?

check this article explaining about moving of SEPM to one hardware to another hardware.

you can replicate SEPM's between embedded DB.

You can take backup using SEPM backup and restore wizard.

It is possible.

However, what you have heard is in reference to the SEP SBE 12.1. Replication cannot be done on Small Business Edition.
