Re: Move on demand scanning schedule

Do you want to make ODS schedule 4 hours after business hours?
If this true, you have to set ODS schedule on ePO with

Schedule Type: Daily
Start time: set as after 4 hours from business hours ended

Re: Move on demand scanning schedule

Hello @mmkm9090 ,

I am referring to : Enable and configure on-demand scans.

Which states if you select Run on-demand scan for every __4__ days, then every 4th Day the task will run irrespective of week count.

eg; If you started today then after 4 days it will again run.

Re: Move on demand scanning schedule

Hello @mmkm9090,

Thank you for your query!

ODS Scheduler refers to the settings for the SVM.

As in, if the calendar is marked for everyday that means the SVM is free for everyday to take the scan request at any given time. 

However, since we have defined Run - On Demand scan for every 7 days , the ODS will run only once in 7 days. 

For Ex : If we configure the ODS to start today 31/01/2020 -  the scan will be performed on 06/02/2020

The scan will be performed based on the availability settings defined under ODS Scheduler.

Hello @mmkm9090 ,

Thank you for your query!

As per the settings, your machines are set to scan from Mon - Fri during specific hours. The ODS should take place within a gap of 7 days. 

Now if there are any machines which do not get the scan completed on say Monday, the scan will be done on Tuesday. 

Now for the machine which gets scanned on Tuesday, there will be a wait of 7 days before the next ODS gets triggered. 

Hope this answers your query.

Re: Move on demand scanning schedule

If you have enabled the policy to only allow ODS for 4 x days of each week, then the clients should only be scanned during the active period. The 7 day figure is the minimum time between scans of the same client. If the SVM has already scanned the client previously within the 7 day window, then it will be passed over.

Either check SVM ODS results in ePO, or check the SVM windows application log, event id`s 10 and 12. You should see the ODS start / stop events recorded, along with any that have been terminated as they ran over the (default figure) 150 minute allowed per VM for its ODS to complete.
