You need to stop or start Symantec AntiVirus for Linux (SAVFL) as part of a troubleshooting process.
There are two Symantec AntiVirus daemons: symcfgd and rtvscand. To stop/start these daemons, do the following:
You will need to have root access through su or sudo in order to start or stop these daemons.
Run the following command line (stopping symcfgd will also stop other Symantec daemons): /etc/init.d/symcfgd stop
Restart the daemons: /etc/init.d/symcfgd start
The daemon symcfgd must be started before rtvscand will start.
Note that Linux commands are case sensitive.
Additional information is available in the Symantec AntiVirus™ for Linux® Implementation Guide. The guides are located in the docs folder of the product CD that contains the Symantec AntiVirus client software for Linux.
