Licencing Symantec Endpoint 11.00 by re-installing. Will this delete the database.

Netexperts used Ask the Experts™
Hi Guys,

We installed a trial version of Symantec Endpoint to a server but at the time we didn't have the licence information and so now that we have this we have registered it but according to Symantec we need to uninstall the Trial and install the full version as it can't be converted. Does anyone know if uninstalling will delete ALL the settings (i.e policies etc) as we had network connection issues when we installed it the first time and other problems and so i don't want it to re-install everything again.
If it does can anyone think of a way to re-install without it making any changes ?

Just do a database backup from Start-> All Programs-> Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager -> Database Backup and Restore. Then you should be able to uninstall the trial version and install the licensed version. After the installation is complete do the restore.


That's great.

Many Thanks
