just to revise my setup
I currently have a SEPM 12.1.4023 server ( ip 172.16.X.175 ) and replication server ( ip 172.16.X.176 ) running in production serving almost 1000 users with no issues for the past 2 years or so.
my goal is to move the replication server to new hardware
so the best i thought would be to setup a additional replication server ( ip 172.16.X.177) and then delete the current replication server .
so after install SEPM i start the management and configuration wizard ..
now as i go through the steps now.
choose option => install an additional site from the setion what would you like to do? Next..
server name is 172.16.X.175 ( my main SEPM server ip)
replication port 8443
system administrator name---
password... next page
keep the defaults.... next page
database type is embedded( i keep the defaults) next page
keep the defaults except specify a new password and i click next I see preparing database then initializing database replicating database and a window stating ...
site already exists do you want to replace with a new site and when said yes i see replicating database
and this time is said failed to connect to server. now I got a different error message
if I telnet to port 8443 its working fine. also firewall is disabled on both servers
attached is the new snapshot
apprecite your reply
thanks and regards
