Symantec Endpoint Protection DB Log Problem
I don't understand why a log can grow to such unimaginable sizes, in just 3 months of having SEP installed this log grew up to 65+GB
I had to create a script to clear it and still, just after today's updates, it went from 516KB to 450MB
To me, that just doesn't make any sense.
Here is the script:
REM Stop the services
net stop semsrv
net stop SQLANYs_sem5
REM Allow deletion
attrib -r "C:\Program Files\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager\db\sem5.log"
REM Delete the log file
del "C:\Program Files\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager\db\sem5.log"
REM Recreate the file (this time empty)
"C:\Program Files\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager\ASA\win32\dbsrv11" -f "C:\Program Files\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager\db\sem5.db"
REM Restart the services
net start SQLANYs_sem5
net start semsrv
Create a .bat file with these lines in it and run it.
You might want/need to add (x86) next to Program Files if you have Windows Server x64 installed
