symantec endpoint protection 12.1: restore database to different location


Currently, we have SEP 12.1 on one server but the SQL DB going to a different server. How can we move that DB to the same server SEP 12.1 is installed on, without having to reinstall for the clients, or having to redo policies.

How about taking the backup of the DB and then restore it after installing the new DB?

Restore a database backup to the new SQL server that will be installed on your SEP server. The SQL server version you install should be identical to the version you're migrating from. Then run the Management Server Configuration Wizard to configure the the manager to use the new SQL server. More detailed steps are included in the Administration guide that comes with the media.
