Session Result Message: FAIL - failed to select server
The Java LiveUpdate session did not complete successfully.
Return code = -2,001
This behavior is by design. Since the initial installation of SEP for Linux does include virus definitions it will automatically run LiveUpdate. LiveUpdate will also automatically run at any other time that definitions are missing or corrupt. When LiveUpdate runs in these situations it will create the following file:
As long LuRemediateReq exists, even if you have disabled the LiveUpdate schedule, LiveUpdate will continue to run at regular intervals until successful.
To prevent this behavior, you may choose to allow LiveUpdate to connect to Symantec's LiveUpdate site, or if definitions have already been updated via some other method then simply delete the LuRemidateReq file yourself to stop the LiveUpdate attempts.
Note: the LuRemidateReq file will be recreated the next time rtvscand restarts and there are no valid definition files present.
