Linux OS AV Scanning in SEPM 12.1.2 ?

Created: 19 Nov 2012 • Updated: 19 Nov 2012 | 7 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hi,

What are the latest updates for the SAVFL for Linux ?

I'm thinking to deploy the SEPM Linux appliance to do the Linux OS scanning using vShield API if possible.

can you clarify what you mean to say SEPM on Linux appliance.

The SEP Security Virtual Applicance is not a SEPM. It's a linux based virtual appliance that you install on a VMware EXS/EXSi server. It integrates with VMWare's vShield Endpoint. The Shared Insight Cache runs in the appliance and lets Windows based guest VMs share scan results.

I want to make sure your not confusing this as it does not act as a virtual SEPM.

It only works for clients managed by the SEPM, as you need to set this up in the AV policy. Linux clients cannot be managed by SEPM as of yet.
