The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. You may be able to use the /AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this description; see Help and Support for details.

What version of SEP are you running?

Are you running SEP 11.0.5002 or above??

Could you try following steps - 

1. Stop Symantec Embedded Database service

2. Delete sem5.log from the location indicated in logs

3. Start Symantec Embedded Database service

If the Above steps does not help, do you have a backup of the SEPM database??

If yes, please perform a Disaster Recovery steps -

Hope that helps!!
