Oracle Linux-Real Time Scanning: Protection Status Not Working

Recommended Posts

I have a problem with ESET version 9.0 ( running on Oracle Linux Servers 7.9. All the Linux Servers are showing the error: 

Real Time Scanning Service:: Protection Status Not Working. 

We did the following: 

i. yum upgrade and rebooted the server. 

ii. yum install kernel-uek-devel-'uname -r' kernel-headers and we restarted efs service. 

Yet the issue is not resolved and still have the same error. 

How do we fix this ISSUE

As per https://help.eset.com/essl/9/en-US/?system_requirements.html, only Oracle Linux 8 is supported.

64-bit Operating System

Secure Boot supported

SELinux Support


RedHat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7

ESSL SELinux module policy installation requires an installed selinux-policy-devel package. To start the OS without ESSL SELinux module, use the eset_selinux=0 kernel parameter during OS boot.

RedHat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 8

CentOS 7

Ubuntu Server 18.04 LTS



Ubuntu Server 20.04 LTS



Debian 10



Debian 11



SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 12



SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 15



Oracle Linux 8

(stock kernel only)


If the Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel is used, the kernel-uek-devel package must be installed manually. In this case, Secure Boot is not supported.
