Shrink the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager 12.1 embedded database
We have created a tool based on customer demand to shrink the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager 12.1 embedded database. Here are the steps to use this tool:
1. Backup your database.
Before running this tool, please backup the DB manually by stopping the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager service and copying the sem5.db and sem5.log from "..\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager\db\" to another folder. You can copy them back and start the SEPM service and embedded database service to restore the previous SEPM status.
2. Copy this tool into the "Tools" folder of the SEP Manager.
Copy the file ShrinkEmbeddedDB.bat and ShrinkEmbeddedDB.jar to folder "..\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager\Tools\".
3. Double click file ShrinkEmbeddedDB.bat or run it from a command window.
4. Follow the prompt of the tool to delete the sem5.db.bak and sem5.log.bak after shrinking the database successfully.
