    McAfee MOVE 4.5.1 Agentless - On-demand scan scheduling question

    Paul_N

      All,

       

      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)

       

      and...

       

      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.
