Issue/Introduction

You want to know if root access is available for the Symantec Security Virtual Appliance (SVA), so you can update patches and edit settings.

Resolution

The SVA is a proprietary, virtual appliance that integrates with other Symantec products, and is updated automatically through LiveUpdate as new vulnerabiliies are discovered. Therefore, root access is not available or necessary.
