Environment

Release : 6.8 MP2, 6.9.0, 6.9.1, 6.9.2

Component : Linux Antimalware

Cause

Base Anti-malware Fallback Virus Definition were not installed. 

 

Resolution

If the server doesn't have access to the internet and you would need to use Internal LiveUpdate Administrator there is a requirement to install fallback virus definition. 

Fallback Virus Definition are present on DCS iso image in the location below:

Symantec Data Center Security\DCS Server Advanced\tools\fallback_definitions\6.0.x\fallback.tar.gz

You will need to install the Agent with the fallback definitions, this is an option during agent installation. If your agent is already installed, you may have to uninstall that Agent and reinstall it.
