After upgrading SEPM (Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager) to version 12.1 RU5 replication fails to complete.
The tomcat\logs\SemLaunchService.log contains the following error:
[SERVER] Failed to create process, error code: 193, token name: BcpForReplication_0
The tomcat\logs\scm-server-0.log and ReplicationLocal-0.log contain the following error:
java.lang.Exception: Failed to generate BCP format file.
SEPM is unable to launch bcp.exe as part of the replication process because of the presence of a 0-byte file called "Program" on the root of drive that the SQL client is installed, for example: "C:\program"
This problem is fixed in Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1.6 (RU6).
If you are unable to update your manager, you can work around the problem by deleting or renaming "C:\program".
