Issue/Introduction

You have installed Symantec Protection Engine 7.0.x and you want to set ScanTopLevelMIME parameter. Executing the xmlmodifier command as instructed in the Implementation Guide "Specify whether to scan top-level files" section, however, results in  "java.lang.Exception: Unable  to determine the root master node" error.

 

java.lang.Exception: Unable to determine the root master node

Cause

ScanTopLevelMIME parameter is discontinued with SSE 7.0.0 and onward. 

 

Resolution

As ScanTopLevelMIME parameter is discontinued with SSE 7.0.0 and onward, the corresponding description in the Implementation Guide and help should be removed. This documentation issue will be addressed with the next release of Symantec Protection Engine.
