Remove that package. Then install clamav from the rpmforge repo. That should 
be working on your Red Hat system as well. If you do not want to use SA 
(which I don't understand, but alas), there's no point to install it. After 
this you may need to set the clamd socket to the same that MS uses. Then 
start the clamd service. That's all.

As for your basic problem. Youa re using different software versions. That 
*can* make a difference. Also, using 32bit/64bit makes a difference. The 
only thing you said about the system is ESv4. That's not much. Isn't that 
bound to reach EOL soon, anyway?
