Is Symantec Protection Engine(SPE) supported on SELinux?

Created: 24 Dec 2013 • Updated: 30 Dec 2013 | 1 comment
This issue has been solved. See solution.

I installed Symantec Protection Engine (SPE) version 7.0.2.4 on Redhat SELinux 2.6.18-274.el5 (Linux 5.7 update 7) to run as root.  SELinux had to be disabled in order to install SPE. SELinux remained disabled after installation.

A valid license was copied to the /opt/Symantec/Licenses folder as root:avdefs and SPE was restarted. Running /opt/SYMCScan/ssecls/ssecls on a file results in "Error: Symantec Protection Engine has no valid license" when a valid license is in /opt/Symantec/Licenses/.

Also, connecting with Firefox to https://localhost:8004 does not work. The JRE 1.7.0_40 is installed with no other java installations. Firefox displays "To view Symantec Protection Engine Administrator interface, please install Java runtime environment (JRE) 5.0 update 6 or later".

This is our first attempt to use SPE on an SELinux platform.  Does SPE support SELinux either enabled or disabled? If so, then how do I get around these problems?
