Environment

Release : 10.7

Resolution

The Messaging Gateway is a hardened appliance, it is not a general purpose server. Third-party software cannot be installed on it and any attempts to install third-party software would not be supported. The only generally accessible account for command line use is the admin account, which is a restricted account that has a very limited number of available commands. The available commands that can be used with the Messaging Gateway command line are in the following Administration Guide section:

Administering Symantec Messaging Gateway through the command line

None of these commands would let you install third-party software onto the appliance.
