Need help moving SEPM 12 to a new server

Created: 15 Jan 2013 | 3 comments

I am upgrading all of our server operating systems by building new machines and migration data from the old servers to the new servers including the server where SEPM resides.  Instead of reinventing the wheel I was wondering if there was an easy way to migrate SEPM to my newly created server.

 

Thanks!

I've been able to build the new server and get it configured.  All of my settings are on the new server.  I also made the change on the old SEPM to have the new server as priority 1.  I did this about 24 hours ago but none of the clients have reported to the new server.  They are all still on the old server.  Any suggestions?

Hello,

 
Follow the steps below to move Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager from one server to another with a different IP address and Host name:

1. Install Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager on the new server
2. In the Management Server Configuration Wizard panel, check Install an additional site, and then click Next
3. In the Server Information panel, accept or change the default values for the following boxes, and then click Next
4. Installing and configuring Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager for replication

Server Name
Server Port
Server Data Folder

5. In the Site Information panel, accept or change the name in the Site Name box, and then click Next
6. In the Replication Information panel, type values in the following boxes:

Replication Server Name
(The Name or IP address of the old Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager)
Replication Server Port
(The default is 8443)
Administrator Name
(The Username used to log on to the old console)
Password
(The password used to log on to the old console.)

7. Click Next
8. In the Certificate Warning dialog box, click Yes
9. In the Database Server Choice panel, do one of the following, and then click Next

Check Embedded database, and complete the installation.
Check Microsoft SQL Server, and complete the installation.

Note: While configuring the new server we can choose any of SQL or Embedded as this process is irrespective of the previous database type.

10. Log in to the new Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM) and ensure that all the clients and policies are Migrated sucessfully
11. Click Policies
12. Click Policy Components
13. Click Management Server Lists
14. Click Add Management Server List
15. Click Add > Priority and a new Priority would get added named as Priority2
16. Add the Old server under Prority2 and add the new one under Prority1
17. After the sucessful Migration uninstall the old Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM).
