Silent installation
Silent installation
Use this section to install McAfee VirusScan Enterprise for Linux in silent mode.
Before you begin
•
Before installing VirusScan Enterprise for Linux, make sure that there is no user as
"nails" and no group as "nailsgroup" in the computer.
•
Before installing McAfee VirusScan Enterprise for Linux, you must have McAfee Runtime
and McAfee Agent already installed on the computer.
•
Create a file "nails.options" in the root home (/root) directory.
For example:
SILENT_ACCEPTED_EULA=”yes”
SILENT_INSTALLDIR=”/opt/NAI/LinuxShield”
SILENT_RUNTIMEDIR=”/var/opt/NAI/LinuxShield”
SILENT_ADMIN=”[email protected]”
SILENT_HTTPHOST=”0.0.0.0”
SILENT_HTTPPORT=”55443”
SILENT_MONITORPORT=”65443”
SILENT_SMTPHOST=”0.0.0.0”
SILENT_SMTPPORT=”25”
SILENT_NAILS_USER=”nails”
SILENT_NAILS_GROUP=”nailsgroup”
SILENT_CREATE_USER=”yes”
SILENT_CREATE_GROUP=”yes”
SILENT_RUN_WITH_MONITOR=”yes”
SILENT_QUARANTINEDIR=”/quarantine”
SILENT_START_PROCESSES=”yes”
SILENT_CONTINUE_INSTALL_ON_PAM_ERROR=”no”
Use SILENT_CONTINUE_INSTALL_ON_PAM_ERROR only when 32-bit PAM libraries are
not present.
If you set this flag to yes and continue without Pluggable Authentication
Module (PAM) libraries, the installation of VirusScan Enterprise for Linux
monitor component is skipped, and the web interface will not be available.
However, you can still manage the VirusScan Enterprise for Linux host using
ePolicy Orchestrator or the web interface of some other VirusScan Enterprise
for Linux host. See information about Configuring VirusScan Enterprise for
Linux in the Product Guide.

Use this task if you see messages caused by the use of certificates.
Handling old certificates
Use this task if you see messages caused by the use of certificates.
VirusScan Enterprise for Linux has its own certificate which is added to the browser the first time you
install the product. When you add this certificate permanently, then reinstall VirusScan Enterprise for
Linux, you might experience an error, stating that the certificate is incorrect.
This happens because the certificate is different from the one stored in your browser. Every installation
creates a specific certificate for the host, and associates the certificate with the IP address or the
name that you have provided. If the certificate does not match the stored certificate, the browser
displays an error.
To fix this, remove the old certificate and accept the new one when prompted. The steps are described
for each supported browser.
