How to move SCSP agents to a different management server?


Article ID: 180322

Critical System Protection




To move (redirect) an agent to a different Management Server or port modify the agent characteristics using the SISIPSCONFIG command line tool on the agent (located in the agent IPS bin directory) as follows:

The following command changes the management server host, but leaves the port and cert-file as is:

sisipsconfig -t -h NEWMGTSERV

This example sets the hostname/IP address, port, SSL certificate and tests the connection:

sisipsconfig -t -h MGTSERV -p 1099 -c "c:/Program Files/Symantec/agent-cert.ssl"


The command line script must be executed on each agent that you want to redirect to a different SCSP Management Server.
