I found an old thread titled "The Java Virtual Machine has exited with a code of -1, the service is being stopped." but it was closed and locked.  So I'm posting this new info.

Using SEP 12.1.2015.2015 on XP x32 and 7 x64 clients; SEPM server is running 2008 R2 standard x64; and logging to an external SQL 2012 server.

This morning I found that my SEP clients and server had no green dot, and that I could not launch my local Java SEPM console.  The SEPM console would error with "The application failed to launch" or "Failed to connect to server".  Checked the server services and found the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager service was stopped.  I started it, but about a minute later it would stop and the Application Event Log said "The Java Virtual Machine has exited with a code of -1, the service is being stopped" with a source of "semsrv", Event ID "4096".  Starting the service...

The increased use in the workplace of user-owned devices such as smartphones and tablets, often referred to as bring your own device (BYOD), provides businesses with significant productivity and cost benefits. However, it also presents a number of complex challenges related to security.

Due to the rise of smart media devices like smartphones, tablets and ultrabooks, it is estimated that potentially, as many as 30-35%* of endpoints connected to a company’s network could be unmanaged. These are more at risk than managed endpoints which are typically subject to software patching and endpoint security policies.

Of course unmanaged endpoints are still protected by your perimeter security, such as secure web gateways. However, these have typically evolved from caching proxies and URL filters. What you need is an additional layer of security that provides the best possible levels of protection for unmanaged endpoints.

Symantec Web Gateway (SWG) will...

NOTE: You have now created a "BSD.rtf" file.  You will need to change the file extension to .pkg and move this file to the location the symantec installer is searching for, which is /Library/Receipts

5.  Next, locate the file you created, select the file, then press the cmd + i keys (cmd key is also know as the apple key) this will give you the information about the file
