Problem Moving Symantec Endpoint Protection to New Server

Monday, March 28th, 2011

Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM) makes it easy to manage Symantec Endpoint Protection in your IT infrastructure.  If you need to move SEPM to another server, Symantec provides fairly straightforward documentation.  More than once though after the installation and database configuration completes, I’ve seen an error when opening SEPM.
Failed to connect to the server
To resolve the issue, navigate to program files folder Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager\tomcat\conf and open server.xml. The second line shows:  <Server debug=”0″ port=”8005” shutdown=”171577B1C0A8010B008B9B7649B91FB6″> Change the port number to 8006 and save. Voila! Now you can get into the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager.

Juniper Firewall acting as router from internet via Static IP from Qwest.
Juniper Firewall is also a DHCP server for the internal network. It is handing out 192.168.1.X/24 with a gateway address of
UsRobotics G-max wireless router and firewall connected to the Juniper Firewall.
This device is getting Wan IP address from the Juniper Firewall via DHCP This device is also configured to hand out DHCP of 192.168.1.X/24 with a gateway address of
This was causing a disjointed network error. The wireless would connect but it was limited access. If you plugged a Cat5 cable into the Gmax router you would get the same error.
After doing some research I found that this should have never worked.
I left the IP address and DHCP on the Juniper firewall alone. I changed the IP address on the Gmax Router to hand out DHCP of 10.0.0.X/24. This gives the wireless computers IP addresses of 10.0.0.x/24 with a gateway of The Gmax now gets a DHCP address from the Juniper firewall on the 192.168.1.X network with a gateway of

Auditing ProLaw Events with Item Level Security

Friday, March 4th, 2011

It’s sometimes necessary to audit Events in ProLaw that have been secured to a particular Security Group.  Doing so within ProLaw can prove difficult and querying directly against the ProLaw database may be easier.  Of course, before any activities are performed in Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio, be sure to backup and verify the ProLaw database as unfortunate and unexpected issues can arise.  With your ProLaw database backup completed, the following TSQL queries can provide Item Level Security information:
