Endpoint Protection


A hardware or other failure has caused a Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM) server to shut down unexpectedly.


  • Microsoft Windows Server 2008
  • Microsoft Windows Server 2012
  • Microsoft Windows Server 2016
  • Microsoft SQL Server


If you are using a Microsoft SQL Server database instead of an embedded database, you do not need to take any special precautions when restarting a SEPM server if the database is on a different server.
