Reinstalling Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager 11.0.6 MP2 After Server Crash
Posted on 2011-03-25
Previously had a Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager installed on a Windows 2003 Server Standard. It managed approx 100 clients in one location / group. That server crashed. There was no backup or disaster recovery performed on the Symantec database/files. I'm not sure of the version of the manager, however the latest client it pushed out appears to have been 11.0.3001.2224.
I have a new server, Windows Server 2008 R2 64 bit, SAME NAME AND IP AS THE OLD SERVER, and have installed 11.0.6.MP2. I have not run the configuration wizard yet. Would like to know what steps to perform in order to avoid having to push out new clients as well as avoiding to go to each workstation to change settings.
I am also in the process of trying to retrieve data from the failed server, so it MAY be possible to retrieve any files if needed, so would like instructions for both scenarios.
