    VS 8.5I Patch 3 logs

      Hello,

      I am looking for the logs of what is being scanned by the on access scanner.

      I found the Onaccessscanlog.txt file but this has pretty much useless information. I know unequivocally that there were times the scan engine timed out because the file was too big. Where is the best place to find out what the on access is scanning and when. Thanks in advance!

        • 1. RE: VS 8.5I Patch 3 logs
          It looks like you've changed the default settings on what OnAccessScan logs.. Open the VirusScan Console, double click on "On-Access Scanner" where you can make sure the "enable on-access scanning at startup" is
          CHECKED, then click on the "Reports" tab.. Make sure "Log to file" is CHECKED and place CHECK marks in ALL of the "What to log in addition to scanning activity" boxes as well. Allow the log to be 1 or 2 MB for a fairly compact log file.

          If you're wanting to read the log for email files that were scanned, then there's a different log.. It's the "EmailOnDeliveryLog.txt" file.

          Hope this helps.
