Running Windows 2003 server and Symantec Antivirus v10 - took an image from one admin server and imaged new server, going to shutdown old admin server (number1) so I'm trying to make the new server (number2) the primary so I can move over the managed PC's.  Number2 shows disabled and getting event ID's 60 and 62 in eventvwr.  Anyone come accross this before?  Everything I saw so far eludes to re-installing which I need to try and avoid due to opertional nessesity.  Thanks.

I'm afraid I'm going to have to say i've only ever fixed this via reinstall. Sorry!

Yea I was affraid of that.  Do you know if this is a typical result?  I have to prepare documentation and I was curious if this should be expected to happen every time or not.  Also, do you re-install on the original master(number1) or the new(number2)?  Thanks.

Its fairly common to be honest. And I would recommend trying the new one first in terms of reinstall, otherwise you'll need to do both. Its a pain, but as far as my experience, it happens fairly regularly.

I uninstalled and reinstalled and it still shows disabled, the eventvwr errors 60 and 62 are not showing up, and now I can log into the console but not the client.  I really don't like symantec very much.

Yes, ok it just took sometime, but the option to make it primary is now availble and it is no longer disabled.  I'll give you the points, thanks for replying to my post.
