renewing Endpoint management server

Created: 31 Jan 2013 • Updated: 07 Feb 2013 | 6 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hi there,

I have a question about renewing my main Endpoint management server.
The server is old and is giving me problems, so im planning to replace the old server soon.

I have one local site ( server1)

Under this site i have 3 servers:

- server1 (configured as failover with server2)
- server2
- db Server

I have to replace server1, what is the best procedure to do this?
Can i simply install a new management server and delete server1?
Also the local site under server tab in Endpoint manager is set on this server, do i need to replace this site to another server or is this just a name or something?

Hoping for some answers.

Thanks,

LEVD

Just follow the articles mentioned above for the SEPM migration from one machine to another - just deleting the olde server and installing the new one would not be a recommended approach.

Ok i will read the documents thank you.
But what about the fact i allready have 2 server and 1 DB server?
And what about the local site?

Thanks!

Hello levd,

I discussed your scenerio with senior engineers.

Can i simply install a new management server and delete server1?

----> Yes it's possible.

This approach should work because you already have failover & loadbalancing between both the SEPM's.

Only make sure while running management server you will select 2nd option i.e. Install an additonal management server to an existing site & point it to an existing SQL database.

Note: Before decommisoning SEPM1 remove SEPM1 entries from the SEPM2 server.

Remove from local site of SEPM2.
