We are currently experiencing issues with SAVFL not being able to update its definitions.  While we continue to troubleshoot with Symantec, I was wondering if SAVFL virus definitions can be manually uploaded to the linux servers?  If so, does anyone have any documentation as to how to do that?  Thank you.

Hi,

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.
