After you upgrade all management servers that had a replication relationship, you add the replication partner back. You must also re-add the management servers that were configured for failover and load balancing.
You only re-add replication partners on the computer on which you first upgraded the management server. The upgraded management server must also have previously been a replication partner in the same site farm.
After you add the replication partner back,
Symantec Endpoint Protection Managermakes the databases consistent. However, some changes may collide. See:
If you have two separate, non-replicating sites, you can also use this option to convert one of the sites into a site which replicates with the other site.
To restore replication
- On the console, clickAdmin > Servers.
- UnderServers, expandLocal Site, and underTasks, clickAdd Existing Replication Partner.
- In the welcome panel, clickNext.
- In theRemote Site Informationpanel, type the IP address or host name for the second management server, the system administrator's logon information, and then clickNext.The system administrator's user name isadminby default.
- Set the replication schedule and clickNext.
- Check which items to replicate, and then clickNext.Client package replication uses large amounts of traffic and hard disk space.If you clickYes, the management server performs a full replication of data between the two replication partners.
- When a message appears asking whether or not you have restored the database on the partner site, click one of the following options:
- ClickNoto replicate only the data that changed since this partner relationship was disabled. Symantec recommends this option, especially if your network has low bandwidth.
- ClickYesto perform a full replication of data between the two replication partners.
- Repeat this procedure for all computers that replicate data with this computer.Make sure that you restart the management server service after you restart replication.
