When the Administrator attempts to log on the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM), the following error is presented:
Error: Failed to connect to the server.
Com.Sygate.SCM.Server.Util.SCMServerError: Failed to connect to database after tried 20 times. Please start the data
Failed to connect to the server.
When the SEPM was installed, the defaults were used and the default port (8443) was already in use.
Accordingly, the service “Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager Webserver” is missing.
Change the port to an unused port by following the Disaster Recovery procedure.
In performing the Disaster Recovery procedure to restore the SEPM Webserver service, select a port number other than the default port 8443.
