Upgrading the Symantec Linux Agent

(For 14.3 RU1 and later)
As of version 14.3 RU1, the Linux client installer detects and uninstalls the legacy Linux client (earlier than 14.3 RU1) and then performs a fresh install. Old configurations will not be retained.
To upgrade the Symantec Linux Agent
  1. In
    Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager
    , create and download the installation package.
  2. Copy the downloaded package to the Linux device.
  3. Navigate to folder location and run the following command to make the
    LinuxInstaller
    file executable:
    chmod u+x LinuxInstaller
  4. Run the following command to uninstall the existing agent and re-install the Symantec Linux Agent:
    ./LinuxInstaller
    Run the command as root.
  5. To verify the installation, navigate to
    /usr/lib/symantec
    and run
    ./status.sh
    script to confirm that the modules are loaded and daemons are running:
    ./status.sh
