This issue has been solved. See solution.
I'm trying to run the ShrinkEmbeddedDB.bat tool to shrink our SEPM 12.1.1000.157 database as it's grown to 22GB in size. The tool fails though with the following details:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager\Tools>Shrin
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com/sygate/scm/server
Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: com.sygate.scm.server.util.ScmForma
at java.security.AccessController.doPrivileged(Native Method)
Could not find the main class: com.sygate.scm.tools.db.ShrinkEmbededDB. Program
Our Antivirus definitions stopped updating on the 23rd August which prompted me to try shrinking the DB. I was on holiday and my collegues tried to update the definitions with no luck. Wanted to upgrade to the latest MU1 version but am waiting on our head office as our serial number reports that we have exceeded the number of downloads we are allowed.
Many thanks for any assistance
