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.
- Click Start > Run
- Type Services.msc > Enter
- Scroll down to the Symantec services and confirm the state of the service:
Change the port to an unused port by following the Disaster Recovery procedure.
