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 /

@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.
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)
