I have moved SEP Manager database to a new server. When I then use Management Server Configuration Wizard to change database and try to save I get this error:
The management server "sepserver" already exists. You must change the server name.
And my new database server is not saved.
I have followed this tech note: https://support.symantec.com/en_US/article.TECH104723.html
It is step 7 that does not work for me:
Once complete, Run the "Management Server Configuration Wizard" and point
the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager to the new server housing the newly attached Database.
How can I resolve this issue?
Windows 2012 R2
yes you have temporarily put in a different server name and once you are into the SEPM console delete the old sepm server name and then rename the new server to old server name.
Ok, If I change to a different server name in Configuration Wizard, must I change computername on the server too?
And when I rename back to the old name I run Configuration Wizard again?
I keep all configuration when I change server name like this?
The answer to your question is Yes and Yes. you need to change your server named a to b and run MSCW and let the Sever B be added to your site. then delete the old server a entry from SEPM. once again rename the server back to server a and run MSCW and update the server a in the site.
