Hello,

Linux client can't be managed by SEPM although you can get logs to go into SEPM.

See this:

This has been posted as an Idea and is on the roadmap. See this IDEA

SEPM doesnot manage Linux Client. 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.

Hello Baljeet,

Symantec Endpoint Protection version 11/12 does not support Linux environment. There is no SEP for Linux. There is SAV for Linux (SAVFL) which is included on the SEP disk download.

The SAVFL client cannot be managed by the SEPM, although it can report logs back to the SEPM by using SAV Reporter, which was released after SAVFL 1.0.10, but can be downloaded from the following KB article.

Symantec AntiVirus for Linux (SAVFL) Reporter 1.0.10 Release Notes

SEP does not yet have the ability to manage Linux systems. You can only get logs reporting in to SEPM via SAVFL Reporter.
