This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hi All,

Just a quick question. I am trying to upload the SEP 12.1.4112.4156 client package but it is failing. I am using the instructions here .

I am getting the below error message. Does anyone know if there are any logs for this process to hepl me trouble shoot this. I was initially trying from a UNC path but also tried a local path for the source. Both failed.

Any assistance is appreciated.


Thanks in advance.

Are you trying to import the package?

SEPM version?

Are you trying to add latest client package to old SEPM?

If yes from the download package folder you can view the new packages copy all to the SEPM install location > under Tomcat> package folder

GO to SEPM install location again under bin , run upgrade.bat will update to your db.

Hi all thanks for your feedback. To answer a few of your questions.

The SEPM version is 12.1.4104.4130.

We are trying to upload the 12.1.4112.4156 client installs. So I believe that there is no requirement to upgrade the SEPM.

Manipillai, I will give that a try.

.Brian, good point I will check the package checksums.

Well we have a resolution to the problem.

We found that the packages are stored in the SQL database table. When we enabled the 'finest' logging on the console we saw the following error.

"Could not allocate space for object 'dbo.BINARY_FILE' in database 'sem5' because the 'FG_CONTENT' filegroup is full. Create disk space by deleting unneeded files, dropping objects in the filegroup, adding additional files to the filegroup, or setting autogrowth on for existing files in the filegroup." 

So we reduced the number of Packages and bingo we where able to upload the new version.

Maybe a takeway for Symantec here, the error messaging could be a little more informative.
