The error indicates that although per the import instructions Symantec DLP services were brought down, but there is an exception and that is the Notifier service.  The error calls out the lack of this service.

In Windows Services, stop all Symantec Data Loss Prevention services except

for the Notifier service. The Notifier service must remain running.

Stop the following services:

¦ Vontu Update

¦ Vontu Incident Persister

¦ Vontu Manager

¦ Vontu Monitor (if a single-tier installation)

¦ Vontu Monitor Controller

(unwritten, but ought to be there)

¦ Make SURE that Vontu Notifier is STARTED!
