Hi,

I got about 50-60 Linux server that I installed with SAVFL v1.0.9 so I wonder how to check if those clients gets updated from the LUA server v 2.3.1 ?

there is linux reporting feature, can you check this

http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=DOC3474

The Symantec AntiVirus for Linux (SAVFL) Reporter allows you to monitor and report on the following information from the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM) console:

  • Computer Status Logs
  • Scan Logs
  • Risk Logs

Wow I never knew that is possible before, so yes my UNIX team has told me that the existing SAVFL is version 09, but I have downloaded SEPM v 12.1 RU1 MP1 which shows Symantec AntiVirus for Linux 1.0.13 (after reading in the readme.txt (attached)

Symantec_Endpoint_Protection_12.1_RU1_MP1\Linux\SAVLINUX

is that the latest available ?

Hi John,

SAVFL clients are designed to work as standalone machines.  There's an optional component where some limited information passes from the Linux box to the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager- that's the SAVFL Reporter that Pete mentioned.  It puts the output from certain SAVFL logs into SEPM reports.  That's the tool I'd recommend for you.

One hurdle to jump, though: SAVFL Reporter was introduced with SAVFL MR 10, a later version than you have.  I recommend upgrading a few test machines and installing SAVFL Reporter. Try it out.  Confirm that it is doing what you need, then upgrade and install the rest.

Hope this helps!

With thanks and best regards,

Mick
