systemctl stop fspms.

- Click import.
- Select Linux Security installation package you want to use and click Import.
- Select the imported installation package in the packages list and click Export.
- Specify a name and a folder for the exported zip file. A Remote Installation Wizard window will appear.
- Click Next.
- Enter your license keycode for the product and click Next.
- Adjust the address of your Policy Manager Server and it’s HTTP and HTTPS ports if you need and click Finish.
Copy the exported zip file to the Linux host in your network.
Install the product:
- Log into the Linux host as root.
- Make sure you have the prerequisites installed (refer to dependencies section above).
- Extract the zip file into an empty directory.
- Run the following command:
- Read and accept the license terms when prompted.
- After the installation process finishes, Policy Manager Console will shortly show the Linux host in Pending hosts list.
You can uninstall the product from the command line.
- Log in to the Linux host as root.
- Run the uninstallation command:
- RHEL-based distributions:
rpm -e f-secure-linuxsecurity
- Debian-based distributions:
dpkg -r f-secure-linuxsecurity
- CSLP-3285: Manual and scheduled scanning are present on the GUI but currently are not operational. You can use the “fsanalyze” command to perform manual scanning from the command line.
- CSLP-3288: Fsdiag generation does not work from the GUI. Use the command-line tool directly on the node, instead.
- CSLP-3286: The update service currently does not generate alerts in case of failures.
- CSLP-3291: Service status and statistics are currently not displayed in the policy manager UI.
- CSLP-3289: Alerts are not mirrored in the system log.
- CSLP-3292: Specifying special files or files in /proc and /sys in manual scanning may hang the product.
- CSLP-3293: Debian-based systems are shown as "Unknown" in the Policy Manager Console.
- CSLP-3309: Uninstall leaves 'fsaccd' process running. As a workaround, kill the fsaccd main process manually.
A re-install will fail if the process is still running.
