Move-AV MultiPlatform OAS - ScanTimeout

Good Morning everyone, i have a problem winth Move-AV 4.8 Multiplatform without SVM Manager.

In my infrastructure i have vdi linked clone and vdi "standlone" so not created from a Goldend Image

and policy assign primary and Secondary OSS.

In some cases i see in the Threat Event the "scan Timeout" and i cannot find a solution or a workaround to it except move 45sec to higher value for timeout.

In same infrastructure when i create 20 vm "standalone" the oss scan server goes in cpu freeze for too much request, how can i solve this problem?


Thank you very much

Re: Move-AV MultiPlatform OAS - ScanTimeout

There is a lot of useful information in the Move Faq article:

KB83964 - FAQs for Management for Optimized Virtual Environments (MOVE)

Also, when creating a gold image it's important to run an ODS on it _before_ saving it so that it has a fully populated scan cache - otherwise every time the gold image is used that scan cache has to be recreated on the new machine. This results in a lot of unnecessary scans.

Finally make sure that appropriate OAS policy exclusions are set for the client OS.
For Windows for example you might refer to the Microsoft article:
