Issue



The Symantec Endpoint Encryption Device Control Client window displays the following message in the Protection Status

section: “Panic (machine policy corrupted)”

Error



 “Panic (machine policy corrupted)”


Cause



When a client is tampered with, it goes into panic mode and blocks all ports. When this happens, the Symantec Endpoint Encryption Device Control Client window displays the following message in the Protection Status

section: “Panic (machine policy corrupted)”. An invalid policy log event may be issued if some parts of the policy are still intact, but if it is totally corrupted a log cannot be sent.

Solution



To overcome panic mode, simply apply a valid policy to the client.
