McAfee VirusScan Command Line for Linux Version: 6.1.0.155

Hello,

I have the scanner installed on on of my VM's, Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.10, and this is what I am getting:

[root@vantage scanner]# uvscan --summary --verbose /

Looks like no path has been handed over. I.e. uvscan --summary --verbose /usr/data

 

See also PD26748 (kc.mcafee.com) for syntax examples.

Re: McAfee VirusScan Command Line for Linux Version: 6.1.0.155

I get the same error regardless.

I tried as an example /usr/local to no avail.

@JamesKrych It looks like you're not actually invoking a scan, but rather doing a compatibility check to confirm 15 locations are able to be scanned. When trying to invoke the scan, it looks like you need the --load switch preceeding your directory if the intent is to scan immediately. Please see the examples on page 19 of the CMD for UNIX Product Guide, PD26748.

I am trying and the example you mentioned has the use of a config file to specify what parameters are being used.

My problem is that I kep on getting /dev/sdb ... is not supported. 

And, the scan terminates.

-- load is, as far as I can see, to load a particular scanning configuration. The screenshot looks sane, 15 files total,15 files clean. Where is the problem? Put an Eicar.txt inside the folder and see if its picked up or download a ready made one from here: http://www.eicar.org/85-0-Download.html.

I will try that file you mentioned. 

I am finally seeing some results that make sense. What was throwing me off was the /dev/sdb ... is not supported.

Ah I see, /proc as well as /dev are locations that do not host "files", that can lead to all sorts of weird things I suppose. Looking at your first post, I can see the "/" now, bad idea :-).

Better specify directories to be scanned, like /usr explicitly, not sure why it moaned about /dev/sdb when /usr/local/uvscan had been specified as scan location (I'm by no means a ~nix expert)

Yeah, it just didn't make sense.

/dev/sdb is used as part of a logical volume.

Thanks for helping clear this up.

Best,

 

James
