Linux server - Full scan always still in progress and running...

Hi ,

Please reply to below Query.

we have installed McAfee agent 1.9.x version on Linux test server and could see that Full scan always running on it without stop as soon as agent installed , scan started on the server.


we are not able to stop that full scan, there is only option to disable it. Hence need to know whether it is Normal behavior of the scanning property of McAfee on the Linux server.

Thanks & Regards,

Dileep Kumar K R

Not sure whether you mean Full Scan as in "On Access Scanning" or "On Demand Scan" Task.

On Access will started on install  and will be "on" by default - scanning reads and writes to the machine and can be configured for exclusions etc.

On Demand Scan is a configured "scan task" and really should be run at off peak times.

What is exact version of VSEL???  Which Scan type do you mean??

Re: Linux server - Full scan always still in progress and running...

Thank you for the update.

Full scan currently still in progress on server is "On Access Scanning".

Exact version of VSEL installed is 1.9.2

Kindly confirm whether the "On Access Scanning" will always be running on the server from the time McAfee agent installed.

Yes the On Access Scan is meant to be "on" at all times scanning reads/writes.
