Issue/Introduction

After install or upgrade to Symantec Protection Engine (SPE) 8.2, you notice a high percentage of the options in the local Java based web console are now greyed out.

Cause

This is by design. Protection Engine 8.2 has a new back end scanning engine that supports different configuration options than the older engine in SPE 8.0 and earlier. The Java console is in the process of being retired, and was not comprehensively updated for the new release. 

Environment

Release: 8.2

Component: Java console

Resolution

To configure SPE 8.2 via the UI, consider enrolling the scanners in the SPE centralized cloud console. It is updated to reflect the changes in the back end engine. For details about the centralized console, please see the Centralized Console Online Help.

If enrollment in the centralized console is not possible, all settings can be managed in "Core server only" mode via the command line utility xmlmodifier. For details about core server only mode, see the Core server only mode Online Help. For details about the xmlmodifier tool and command syntax, see the xmlmodifier Online Help.
