WARNING: /var dir has less than 1GB free space available 

WARNING: Antimalware feature is disabled


Release : DCS 6.8.2 & DCS 6.9.0

To ensure a successful install of the DCS agent for RHEL 7, with antimalware and auto protect features enabled, the following resources need to be available:

/var directory needs 1GB free space

/tmp directory needs 1GB free space

/opt directory needs 4GB free space

If any of these requirements are not met, the antimalware features will fail to install.
