              Please check the installation guide, it clearly say the Virusc scan supported platforms and kernel versions.

                      It's been a while since I played with LinuxShield, but if you pushed through ePO, shouldn't you also be making policy changes through ePO?


                      I would think that even if you did manage to change the status, it would revert to whatever was defined within policy at the next enforcement interval. Or was altering it manually only for troubleshooting maybe?
