Some parameters of Sophos Anti-Virus Admins, such as users and groups, can be centrally created and managed by the local admin. When Sophos groups and users are centrally managed in a network, it may be more convenient to install and uninstall Sophos Anti-Virus for Linux using special options to omit user and group parameters from the install and uninstall commands, as shown below.
Assume that the sophosav user already exists, and therefore do not create the user.
Assume that the sophosav group already exists, and therefore do not create the group.
Do not attempt to remove the sophosav user on uninstallation.
Do not attempt to remove the sophosav group on uninstallation.
