Hi Experts

I am trying to install Symantec Endpoint protection on a new server.  I have a backup of the database but someone else uninstalled the management console from the original server due to disk space issues.  I am in the process of reinstalling the management software on a different server which has more disk space.  I guess my question is how do I re import the backupn database and make sure the existing clients contact the new management server,,,

Thanks - I have just skimmed throught the links and do not see where I am able to update the new server name.  I will look deeper into the links.

For full recovery, you should have copied the server's certificate and domain ID. Otherwise, you will face issues.

Try restoring the database and see if communication between clients and server has been restored.

You can replace the Sylink.xml file (at the client side) and this will restore the communication. Check the following KB articles:


Use SylinkReplacer (http://www.impassnet.org/wp-content/test/SEP/sylinkreplacer.zip) to replace this file remotely on all machines

I actually was not able to complete the upgrade.  We decided to reload the OS on the server due to disk space issues but this was the info I was looking for.
