Re: VirusScan Enterprise for Storage on NetApp


Managed to get this working with loads of tweaking which are not listed in both doc (VSES PG & NetApp CG), I have created loads of screen shots with errors and solutions, will post this to a website which will be available to download, checked logs this morning and 278 files were scanned and delivered...Happy days

Configuration is Clustered ONTAP 8.2 Filer (2 filers each site Live/DR), VSES 1.1.0 + Filer connector (this need to be setup with ONTAP Mgt LIFs) – 8 scanner servers for 2 sites.

As per the error above, it has to do with permission on both Filer and Admin Access for Filer cluster name on ePO

Many thanks to all
