You need to delete more than 1000 Symantec Data Loss Prevention(DLP) Agents from the Enforce console at one time and are getting a red banner error. 


Default setting is to limit DLP Endpoint Agent tasks to 1000 or less.


  1. On the Enforce server, edit the file.
  2. Look for this section:
    • # The max number of agents that can be selected for  task type DELETE
    • # com.vontu.manager.troubleshootingTask.maxTasks.DELETE = 1000
  3. Un-comment the second line.
  4. Adjust the value to the desired amount.
  5. Save the changes.
  6. Restart the Enforce server services.

Note: Increasing this setting above the default may cause performance issues in the Enforce console.
