In this document the "Source Manager" will be the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM) connected to the database that is to be replicated and "Destination Manager" the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager whose database will be created as a replication of the source Manager Database.
After a SEPM Replication Partner is added, the error "Unable to connect to the server specified" occurs.
There may be other errors.
The following errors occur:
The SEPM is a Java-based application, much of its performance is related to the size of the "Java Heap".
Modifying the settings that control the size of the Java Heap will improve the performance of a wide variety of the functions performed by the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager.
To adjust the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager heap size:
KB 2008061813510348 Tuning the Performance of the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager console

The Heap Size for Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager is specified with two values, stored in the registry.
The default value for JVM Option 1 is 256 MB, while the default value for JVM Option 0 was reduced from 256 MB to 64 MB in SEP 11 MR2 to reduce the memory footprint of the application in smaller environments - the application will automatically increase the size of the Java Heap as required until it encounters the configured maximum size.
These values can be increased to better suit the available resources on the computer; performance can be optimized by following the guidelines below:
Note: Always allow for at least 256 MB to be allocated to the Operating System.
For Example: On a computer with 1 GB of RAM, the maximum value for the Java Heap should not exceed 768 MB.
