Symantec Data Center Security Common Agent Framework installed successfully.
  Installing : sdcss-sepagent-6.8.2-321.el6.x86_64                          3/4 
start: unrecognized service

Attempting to check the status of the sisamddaemon with the following command results in an "unrecognized service" error: 

service sisamddaemon status

 

Cause

This issue can occur when sisamddaemon isn't properly linked as a service. When the service is improperly linked, the service can fail to start.  The client will not register properly if sisamdagent service isn't running.   

Environment

Redhat 6.10

Resolution

This issue is fixed in Symantec Endpoint Protection 14.3 RU1. For information on how to obtain the latest build of Symantec Endpoint Protection, see Download the latest version of Symantec software.
