You would like to know the process for moving from the embedded database to Microsoft SQL Server as the database for the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (enterprise version).
Before you begin, do the following:
Note: You must uninstall and reinstall the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager as part of this process. This is currently the only way of removing the embedded database (after backing it up) and reconfiguring the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager for Microsoft SQL. During the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager reinstallation, it is recommended that you let the installer create and initialize the database; you may optionally use a SQL database that you have created and initialized yourself.
The procedure you follow depends upon whether the file Recovery_timestamp.zip (where timestamp represents the date and time of the creation of the file) exists on the machine that runs Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager. This file is found by default under C:\Program Files\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager\Server Private Key Backup\. Your installation location may vary.
During the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager installation, rather than let the installer initialize the database, you may use a Microsoft SQL Server database that you have created and initialized yourself:
