SEPM console and java version 6.x fixed

Created: 14 Jan 2008 • Updated: 21 May 2010 | 6 comments
Previously the SEPM console would only work with JRE 1.5.x and not 1.6.x.  Sun has just released 1.6 update 4 which solves this problem.  Besides having to install JRE 1.6u4, you must also be running SEPM MR1 for this to work.  I just tested the new JRE on 2 XP systems and 1 Vista and the SEPM console now works fine.

Just a shot in the dark here Josie.
After I removed all previous versions of the JRE (1.6.03 and 1.5.12) and installed the new 1.6.04, I had to reboot to login to the console.  Once I was in, the home and monitor pages wouldn't load on my Vista machine.  The fix was to right-click the SEPM console shortcut, go to the compatibility tab, then put a tick in the Run this program as an administrator checkbox under Privilege Level.
Another thing you can try is to remove the console, then reinstall from http://<server>:9090.
Maybe this will help.

I did try this and, it kind of worked, the graph does not show the right signatures it shows back from Dec 20th, however if i click within the graph it does show the current data.  However in order to get to this i first had to choose intrusion prevention, then switch back to the virus definitions distribution.  How odd is that?  I don't know where it is getting the dec 20th info?

Just wanted to mention that I installed this update today and all is working fine within the SEPM console on Windows 2003 Std SP2 and Windows XP SP2.

Your issue might be related to the one in another thread. .  A symantec employee has posted a possible fix you may want to try.
