Importing client-server communication settings into the Linux client
Last Updated April 24, 2019
After you install an unmanaged Symantec Endpoint Protection for Linux client, you can convert it to a managed client to centrally manage the client's policies and status with Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager. A managed client communicates with and reports its status and other information to Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager.
You can also use this procedure to reconnect a previously orphaned client with Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager.
You must have superuser privileges to perform this procedure. The procedure uses sudo to demonstrate this elevation of privilege as required.
The text path-to-sav represents the path to the sav command. The default path is /opt/Symantec/symantec_antivirus/.
To import the client-server communication settings file into the Linux client
You or the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager administrator must first export the communication settings file from Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager and copy it to the Linux computer. Ensure that the file name is sylink.xml.
