I have been pounding on this problem for weeks, and even with the help of other members on here I have not been able to nip it.

When SAV, specifically autoprotect, and NSS are both installed on an OES Linux server the machine will lock and become completely non-responsive. I have been able to reproduce it on many servers.

Below is my GRC.DAT file. From my understanding, /_admin needed to be blocked from scanning cause that has known issues. I have blocked scanning /_admin, and I have verified the GRC.DAT file is being read in via symcfg command.

Steps to reproduce...
Do base install of SLES10 SP2.
Boot system add on OES SP1.
Install SAV /* problem starts occurring */
Configure SAV with GRC.DAT /* problem still occurring */

If I disable autoprotect the problem goes away, well, and my virus protection. One thing to note is the OS is on an LVM device and the NSS volume is on a separate device, per the OES documentation recommendations.
