Installing or Updating

Download the Stand Guard Anti-Virus install file for your operating system from the Fortra website. Current users can access the download from the My Account page. If you're a new user, you should have received an email message containing the download link. If you don't have it, contact your Regional Manager.

Unzip the download file, then place the rpm file on the host machine.

If you are updating Stand Guard Anti-Virus, you will run the product installer over the existing Stand Guard Anti-Virus 4 installation. By default, the update folder is the same as the one used for your original Stand Guard Anti-Virus 4 installation. (If your current installation uses a different install path, that path can be provided with the --prefix option.) Before updating, backup any user data.

Once the update is complete, a new license file will need to be placed in the installation folder. The existing license.xml file should be removed. Make sure to keep a copy of license.xml if a rollback to the previous version is needed.

To install or update on Red Hat and SLES

NOTE: If you are installing the 32-bit version of Stand Guard Anti-Virus on RedHat 6.8 or later, you must install this package before installation.

yum install libstdc++.so.5

 

Run the following command to install:

rpm --install <rpm-file-name>

where <rpm-file-name> is the name of the .rpm installation file.

 

By default, the product will install to the /opt/sgav directory which will be created if it does not exist. To install to a different directory, use the --prefix option. For example:

rpm --install <rpm-file-name> --prefix /home/sgav

will install to the /home/sgav directory.

 

Run the following command to update:

rpm --upgrade <rpm-file-name>

where <rpm-file-name> is the name of the latest version of the .rpm installation file.

 

To install or update on Ubuntu

To install on Ubuntu, run the following command:

dpkg -i <file-name>

where <file-name> is the name of the product .deb file.

 

To uninstall on Red Hat and SLES, run the following command:

rpm -e sgav-4.1

 

To uninstall on Ubuntu, run the following command:

dpkg -r sgav

 

Licensing

After your purchase, you will receive an email from Fortra with your license code attached. To license the software:

  1. Save the attached file to the /opt/sgav directory.
  2. Rename the file "license".
