    Java -1 is very generic error happens mainly because of port conflicts and permissions.
    There can 100 reason for java -1.Could you please post the scm-server.log from program files\sepm/tomcat/logs directory.

    Vikram has provided almost everything that you  need.
    I would just like to add that what could have caused this issue if it was running fine earlier:

    1. Insufficent space on the drive where SEPM in installed
    2. A java Update
    3. If you are uisng SQL then the the Transcation logs would have filled.
    4. A windows update
    5. Change in the GPO in respect with permssion

    I found this issue when I installed SEP to a machine that had VMware Virtual Center installed on it.  Virtual Center uses the embedded database too and I needed to re-install everything then tell SEP to use port 8006 for connections.  Instructions can be found in Vikram's post.

     @mikhael-- there was a very easy way to do that you just had to edit the server.xml file and change the port number from 8005 to 8006 over there..

    Easiet way to check if there is conflict with port 8005..open taskmanager ..processes--sort by name--and if you find any tomcat.exe or tomcat(1-9).exe..its definitely port 8005 problem..

    Hi -

    We had this same error previously, and it had to do with Java HeapSpace issues (memory management, and competing for RAM with SQL server).

    Unfortunately, even setting the Java HeapSpace to the maximum possible on our servers (32bit OSs, Windows Server 2003, with 4G RAM),   did not resolve the problem.


    Our problems went away after we migrated up to SEP 11 MR4 MP2.    We are still "right on the edge" with respect to RAM, but better efficiencies in the way SEP MR4MP2 uses SQL and Java must be the difference.


    Our next plan is to migrate the database off the SEPM itself over to another SQL database purpsed server.
