    More than one root process is running for Linuxshield scanner

      Hi Team,

       

      Please help to check this issue, in the production server there are more than one root process is running for Scanner.

      Even if we restart the McAfee process, next day another root process is spawned and sometimes there are 3 root process.

      The server becomes unresponsive and after the restart of the McAfee process the server comes to normal operation.

       

      Is there a way to control the spawing of root process when already a root process is running.
