How to add "Additional Files Types" to On-Access Scan?

Jump to solution

Hi

Can one add additional file types to the client on-access scanner via the policies on EPO console to push down to the clients?

IE. I want to add the extension VMX to the list of available files extensions that should be scanned.

How do I go about configuring this?

Thank you

epo 4.5

Menu/policy/policy catalogue

choose product " virusscan enterprise 8.7" from drop down

choose category " onm access default processes" from drop down

identify the policy you are using from the main screen area and choose to "edit settings"

make sure you have the right workstation/server setting in drop down box

choose "scan items" option from the bar

in the "file types to scan" section set what you want, as prev stated the additional option to insert only opens when you check the "default and additional" or "specified file types" option.

alter policy

save and close

if you choose the "default and other types" then it opens up a box to insert additional types into, the same thing happens for specified types only

This is in default processes policy or high risk/low risk if you chose to split them

Is this configuration,  you speak about, done in EPO console or are you talking about the client side?

I need to configure this on the EPO console policy.

Can you describe the path get to the console configuration area where I would set this up please? ie. where do I find "default and other types" ?

Thanks.
