Symantec endpoint manager services will not start

Created: 03 Dec 2012 • Updated: 03 Dec 2012 | 11 comments

currently im trying to free up some space on the server im looking after and realise i have got alot of the definitions building up alot of space

but to do that i need to access the endpoint protection manager. problem is the service to run the application wont stay on it seems to keep dropping off everytime i try starting the symantec management client. 

the log in is local to the machine so im assuming i dont need to input a domain for this server. 

any ideas ?

Hello,

can you pass on the scm-server-0.log, this is located at tomcat\logs\ folder of SEPM installed directory

Disk Space Management procedures for the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager

Have you tried running a repair on the manager?

Add/Remove programs highlight SEPM and click change then repair?

Please review ideas and vote there could be something useful :)

A repair shouldn't require a reboot.
