McAfee Move MultiPlatform 4.5.1 not detecting EICAR test file

Hi all,

Just set up McAfee MOVE AV Multiplatform and just testing if malware will be detected on a VM with Move AV client using the EICAR test file.

I already setup the policy to scan all files.

When I look at the mvagent.log I see the following error:

ERROR: scan.c : 4622: scan_file_with_file_transfer failed for file <> error 108

Any idea why this is happening? It seems like other files are being scanned (by running a diagnose on the SVM) by the SVM but I would like to get confirmed that it can detect malware and remove it.

Any advice would be appreciated.
