Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager 12 will not start the service. The issue is that port 8014 is in use. We have changed it to port 8015 and the service starts, however, all clients have 8014 as the communication port and the management server cannot communicate with them. We are unable to locate what is using port 8014.

This was running on another server and the customer moved it so anything that was pre existing in setup we were unaware of. This server also has Symantec Backup Exec 2012 installed.

We would like to get port 8014 unlocked and used by Protection Manager.
