By default, Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) for Linux is installed in the /opt/Symantec directory. For various reasons it may need to be installed into an alternative location.
SEP for Linux versions 12.1 RU5 or higher can be installed to a custom directory. This is supported only on systems which use the RedHat Package Manager (rpm). Use the following command line to specify the installation location:
./install.sh -i --prefix <path>
<path> can be wherever you choose, as long as it is valid and provides sufficient space to host the SEP for Linux install
Note: If /etc/Symantec.conf exists on the file system prior to the install (this is likely if SEPFL was installed previously and removed, or you are performing an upgrade) and points to a different path, the installation will return the following error:
Relocation not supported for this configuration, please use --prefix /<path listed in Symantec.conf>
In this situation, you will need to edit the /etc/Symantec.conf and specify the same path you are using with the --prefix option.
