Large AvvScan.dat file

Hi

My EPO sever has been complaining of lack of disk space and on further investigation I have noiced that the Avvscan.dat and Access_log files are over 1gb each. Is it possible to restrict the size of these files or delete them.

I am running EPO 4.5 with VSE 8.7i.

Hello Brooke,

Could you please provide the full path of the avv*dat and access_log in your ePO server?

Thanks,

The path of the avv*.dat files are

c:\program files\common files\mcafee\engine and c:\program files\common files\mcafee\engine\oldEngine

Re: Large AvvScan.dat file

Also, which patch version is your EPO Server? From memory there was a bug in 4.5 P1 or 4.5 where it wouldn't automatically prune older dat files from the repository.

Re: Large AvvScan.dat file

Hello,

The issue mentioned by mjmurra happened on ePO 4.5 RTW (4.5 without any patches). It was fixed on ePO 4.5 Patch 1 (KB67585).

However, the issue here is different, it's something with VSE 8.7. Are you running VSE 8.7 Patch 4? Also do you have more machines with this syntom or it's happening only with a machine? If this is happening only with this machine is there something different regarding VSE install on this box?

Thanks,
Bruno

Hi Bruno

We are running EPO 4.5 patch 1 (Build 851) and VSE 8.7 Patch 4 with AntiSpyware 8.7. I have checked the other machines that have patch 4 installed and the avv*.dat files are also the same size.

What size should the avvscan.dat file be ?

Regards

Graham
