How do you verify if a VSEL hotfix is implemented on a Linux server?

Jump to solution

I currently have the following implemented within my ePO server:

McAfee Agent for Linux 4.5.0.1812

VSEL 1.6.0 with Hotfix 658114

How do I verify if the hotfix 658114 has been deployed successfully to the Linux server via ePO?  /var/log/messages doesn't provide this information for me.  What is a good linux command to verify? Or what is the path to view VSEL logs?

Thanks!

I wanted to provide the correct answer to my question so others are informed if they are still wondering the answer. 

To verify installed hotfixes, run the following command:  cat /opt/NAI/LinuxShild/etc/HF-Version

That will display all the hotfixes you have installed on that particular Linux server.

I just wanted to add more data...

Within ePO, I click on a random Linux server within System Tree view and it brings up the "system details."  System details don't provide "Hotfix/Patch Version" information.  Unlike the Windows systems, they display what patch version is installed on that server.  I was hopping to see this data within ePO.  Maybe i'm looking in the wrong place? 

I haven't looked at the VSEL browser interface.  I would have to install Hummingbird to display the GUI and I don't want to use the GUI on a Linux system for basic information.

Thanks again...

I was going to say that it should display in the "more" section next to the Linuxshield product properties in system details; but after looking at my system it doesn't appear to exist in there (at least for 1.5.1).

If doesn't exist in 1.6, maybe there is still time to get the functionality put into 1.7.

Thanks heaps for providing the answer.

Perfect timing for me as I had to do some VSEL HF installs today and wanted to make sure they installed correctly.
