How can you configure VSE for Linux 1.7 settings w/o User Interface?

Jump to solution

Hello,

I’ve noticed that /opt/NAI/LinuxShield/template/etc contains two noticeably important config files. Ods.cfg contains only On Demand Scanning settings, while nailsd.cfg contains the On Access Scanning settings (listed at the end of the file).

However, I also noticed that the nailsd.cfg posts a warning that says: “This file is updated by the LinuxShield user interface. Any updates to this file may be lost or result in an invalid configuration.”

If we remove the web-based user interface (because McAfee VSE for Linux 1.7 installs an ancient version of apache that is riddled with security vulnerabilities), are there ways to safely configure VSE for Linux 1.7 (aka LinuxShield) without the user interface (ie only command line interface)?

Can you do it through ePO 4.5?

Can you do it safely through the config files I mentioned via command line? How?

thank you in advance,

-Adrian

I realized that ePO 4.5 can configure the VSE for Linux 1.7 settings via Policy.

This was only achievable after I checked in LYNXSHLD1700.zip into the Software > Extensions.

However, if someone would still like to provide me with advanced configuration methods via command line so that I could edit those config files safely, that is much appreciated.

I am looking for the same information.  I have a need to deliver a pre-configured ods.cfg file for use by VSE for Linux but cannot seem to get my system to recognize the modifications I've made to that file.  Did you ever get a satisfactory answer (besides using ePO?)
