In previous versions of Sophos Anti-Virus for Linux it was not possible to change the 'NotifyOnUpdate' option using the savconfig command locally when the Linux PC was managed (see below) from Enterprise Console. This behaviour has now changed as detailed below.
Applies to the following Sophos product(s) and version(s) Sophos Anti-Virus for Linux
Since the release of Sophos Anti-Virus for Linux version 9.3.0 the NotifyOnUpdate option is now disabled by default. Additionally this value is not locked on the endpoint and can be modified by running the following command:
/opt/sophos-av/bin/savconfig set NotifyOnUpdate <true/false>
Related information A managed installation means that when Sophos Anti-Virus was installed on the Linux PC, a copy of Sophos Remote Management System (RMS) was also installed, allowing the PC to be managed by Enterprise Console.
