Multiple devlux_####.log files will be generated, each suffixed with the PID of the liveupdate process.
You may optionally set "logger.sink=console,file" so that LiveUpdate command line (sav liveupdate -u) will also echo lux debug logging to stdout.
Defutil logging is saved to /opt/Symantec/virusdefs/defutil.log (for example). The log name is specified in configuration below; "defutil.log" is used here, but any name may do. Defutil logging is helpful when the LiveUpdate log indicates a successful session, but definition updates are still not being applied. For example, "Failure in post processing" error seen at the command line when attempting to update definitions. To enable defutil logging, edit or create the following file: /etc/symc-defutils.conf, add a [defutillog] section if it does not exist, and add "defutillog_name=defutil.log".
Example entry in symc-defutils.conf:
In SEP 14.2 and newer, create empty defutil.log under /opt/Symantec/virusdefs directory first before editting symc-defutils.conf.
System event logging is saved by default to /var/symantec/Logs/syslog.log and is always on.
Events which can be observed in the system event log include:
A LiveUpdate session ran successfully
Applied new policy
Connected to Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager
Received a new policy
Symantec Management Client has been started/stopped
The client has successfully downloaded and applied license file
