How to install a second site for replication

Installing a second site for replication is a two-part process:
  • Install a second
    Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager
    and database to replicate with a
    Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager
    and database that is already installed.
  • Log on to the second
    Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager
    and change the schedule and the items that you want to replicate (optional). See:
To install a second site for replication
  1. Install a second
    Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager
    . See:
    The
    Management Server Configuration Wizard
    automatically starts after the management server installation.
  2. In the
    Management Server Configuration Wizard
    , click
    Custom configuration for new installation (more than 500 clients, or custom settings)
    , and then click
    Next
    .
  3. Click
    Install an additional site
    , and then click
    Next
    .
  4. In the next panel, type the following information, and then click
    Next
    :
    • Replication server
      The name or IP address of the management server that is already installed and that this management server replicates with.
    • System Administrator name
      and
      Password
      .
      The system administrator's user name is
      admin
      by default. You must use a system administrator account, and not a limited administrator account or domain administrator account.
    • Check
      Replicate client packages and LiveUpdate content between the local site and this partner site
      (Optional).
      If you don't check this option now, you can check it later.
  5. If a warning message about accepting the certificate appears, click
    Yes
    .
  6. In the site information pane, accept or change the default values, and then click
    Next
    .
  7. In the database choice pane, click either the
    Default SQL Server Express database
    or
    Microsoft SQL Server database
    , and then click
    Next
    .
    Symantec recommends that the site with which you replicate uses the same type of database, but it is not required. For 14.3 MPx and earlier, the default database is the
    Default Embedded database
    .
    Complete the installation based on the database that you choose.
  8. In the
    Run LiveUpdate
    pane, click
    Next
    .
    Optionally add the partner information.
  9. Optionally accept the data collection feature, and then click
    Next
    .
    The database gets created. This step takes some time.
    The
    Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager
    launches.
