This document provides the steps required to install the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM) version 14 RU1 MP2 and later versions, using Amazon Web Services (AWS) RDS SQL Server. The SEPM requires the Microsoft SQL Server Native Client (bcp.exe & sqlcmd) to communicate with the SQL database. Before installing the SEPM, it is required to install the Microsoft SQL Server Native Client components. The version number of the native client should be the same version number of the SQL Server deployed and used in AWS RDS SQL Server.
Supported for SEPM 14 RU1 MP2 and later versions.
Download SEP 14 RU1 MP2 or later.
Download and install the appropriate version of the Microsoft SQL Server Native Client that matches the version of AWS RDS SQL Server on the SEPM machines.
To install the SQL Server Native Client, see the Microsoft TechNet page appropriate for your version of SQL Server
Find or search for the file path of "bcp.exe" and document the path for the SQL Server Native Client tools to be used later during SEPM installation.
