Symantec Control Compliance Suite - 11.0 Update for DBConvert

May 10, 2013


This Symantec™ Enterprise Security Manager 11.0 update for DBConvert provides fixes for following issues:

  • DBConvert did not clean the suppression records even after they had been removed from the ESM manager. As a result the reports continued to show the suppression data.

    Resolution: This update adds a new parameter "dbconvert.cleansuppression" to the database conversion tool. If the value for the parameter dbconvert.cleansuppression is set to true, suppression records that do not exist on the ESM manager for a policy, are removed from the database.

  • Certain types of errored out jobs were re-converted every time DBConvert utility was run, although DBConvert utility must convert each job only once.

    Resolution: This update resolves the issue and now the DBConvert utility does not try to re-convert errored out jobs every time the utility is run.

Symantec has released the following zip file containing the updated binaries to resolve the issues.
