Scan locations in ENS Threat prevention: Custom On-Demand Scan

Jump to solution

Hello,

the issue is with 

Client Task Catalog : Edit Task - Endpoint Security Threat Prevention: Custom On-Demand Scan where I need to specify "whatever" in the path for Scan locations.
 
See the picture.Scan_locations.PNG
If there are "**" stars in the Location path then I get error message "Invalid path"
 
Is there any other option how to define it ?
 
Thank you
 
Lukas

Hi Lukas!

On-Demand scanning "File or Folder" locations are designed to be direct targets, and will not accept wildcards. If you would like to target a directory that may appear in different locations on different systems, you must define the location multiple times.

 

Example..

Location: C:\Program Files\Test\EU_Branch

Location: C:\Program Files (x86)\Test\EU_Branch

 

There is not a problem with your exclusion definition, however, wildcards are reserved for Exclusion paths. (https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB54812)
