The Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM) requires the following Microsoft SQL components:
• Microsoft ODBC Driver for SQL Server
• Microsoft Command line utilities for SQL Server (bcp.exe & SQLCMD)
NOTE: Starting with 14.3 RU1, pre-installing the Microsoft SQL Server Native Client is no longer required. If you are installing/reinstalling 14.3 MP1 or earlier, you will still need to download and install the Microsoft SQL Server Native Client before installing the SEPM.
Once all the files have been downloaded, open Windows Explorer and navigate to the folder you created in step 1. i.e. c:\SQL Client tools
Double Click msodbcsql.msi -- ODBC Driver for SQL Server to install the ODBC drivers. When the install finishes, double click MsSQLCmdLnUtils.msi to install Microsoft Command line utilities for SQL Server
Once these have been installed, you can now install the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager
Starting with SQL server 2014 Bcp.exe is now located in C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\Client SDK\ODBC\<version>\Tools\Binn. When installing the SEPM you may receive the error "SQL Server Client tools must be installed on your server". If you run into this message, click OK and then click browse and browse to the location of Bcp.exe.
