what vse version are you running? vse 8.7 gives the option to allow the user to defer scheduled scans
you can tag virtual machines and set the scan task to not apply to them if you are using epo 4 or 4.5 or if only 3.6.1 then you would need to maybe keep them in one container and not apply to this.
vse enteprise 8.7i.
Soo this defer allows users to pause/cancel the running on-demand-scan task?
yes that is one of the options when you create a vse 8.7 scan task
I have not marked the DEFER option but im still able to close the scan32.exe in task manager on user's computer, why is that? Why DEFER is even needed if I can manually close the scan32.exe?
Is it possible that on demand scan task would bring some window popped on the screen (some kind of a kindly note, that mcafee is doing this kind of scan). Why is that? Because if there will be a lot of users calling me on the phone with words: "My computer is running slow", I'm not able to determine where the problem is, aspecially if On-demand-scan is running silently.
with best regards

yes it allows to defer via the gui not just closing scan32.exe
Thank you for the answer.
Too bad, that viruscan console window does not automatically appears on the screen when the task starts to run.
Would you maybe know if there is any automatic tool that would skip running this task on virtual machines?
I have scheduled this task to run once a week at 02.00 am. What happens if the user has turned off his computer? Will the task automatically run, when the user turns on the computer or only at this hour which is scheduled?
depends if you tell it to
I think you need to go back and read the manual a bit, all this stuff is there
