Replication between SEPMs may fail sporadically.

The scm-server-x.log or replication-x.log has errors similar to:

"String index out of range: -1", or
"ReplicationTask>> replicate: Unable to fetch changed data from remote site [Site Name]: String index out of range: -1"



This problem is fixed in Maintenance Patch 2 for MR4 of Symantec Endpoint Protection 11. You can apply this patch over Symantec Endpoint Protection 11 MR4 or SEP 11 MR4 MP1.
