    McAfee MOVE 4.5.1 Agentless - On-demand scan scheduling question




      Hopefully this should be a basic question but I'm trying to get my head around this.


      What is the relationship between the following?:


      1) The setting...  Policy Catalog -> MOVE Antivirus 4.5.1 -> On Demand Scan


      "Run on-demand scan for every" (default is 7 days)




      2) The setting...  Policy Catalog -> MOVE Antivirus 4.5.1 -> SVM Settings -> (show advanced)


      "ODS Scheduler" (grid of hourly timeslots)



      ...in the context of MOVE 4.5.1 Agentless.


      Does this mean that each system is scanned every 7 days but not on the 'black out' times selected in the ODS scheduler?


      Is every machine scanned simultaneously together or is it staggered / randomised in some way?


      If the scan is performed weekly at the same 7 day interval, it would seem to make the ODS scheduler a bit obsolete?


      I could have sworn in the past that ODS for MOVE was more of a 'continuous trawl' rather than a weekly 'full scan' (which seems much more like the way old-school individual physical machine were scanned).


      I've checked the manual and relevant help sections but I can't find a definitive answer to this.


      Many thanks in advance if anyone is able to offer any insight / assistance with this.
