This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hey Guys,

Will the SAV for linux reporting work on SEPM 12.1.2?

This is what the manual said:

■ Symantec Endpoint Protection 11 RU5 or earlier
■ Symantec Endpoint Protection 11 RU6 MP2 with PP1 or later
I just want to make sure that this means "later" up to the 12.x or just later on the 11.x
Operating Systems:

100% Yes.

Even with 12.1 we do not have SEP client for Linux, its only SAV. 

So All the SAV will fwd the logs.

You're saying that you have SEPM that's only function is to do reports for the SAV?

SAV for Linux is designed as a stand-alone product. The client currently runs independently of a management console, though it is now possible to forward certain logs to the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM) with SAVFL Reporter.

SEPM cannot manage SAV

All you can do is Forward logs from SAV clients to SEPM and view it under reports

This holds good for linux clients running SAV
