Setting up scans is done as a client task in the system tree. (New Task - On Demand Scan (product version))
The task creation process will give you all the configuration options such as "Scan Locations", "Scan Items" & "Exclusions" if you are wanting to create a more targeted scan.
You can also set the Performance options and schedule through here.
Cheers katalyst, Went into the system tree and setup a task, found the options you mentioned.
What I'm still not sure on is why its not listed in the VSE console as scheduled. Is this a legacy options within the console? or just something for people who's console is unlocked. (please see screen shot)
ePO managed client tasks being displayed is an option in the VSE policies (User Interface Policy for 8.7 & General Options Policy for 8.8).
In the above mentioned policies there is a check box for "Display managed tasks in the client console" which will enable the newly created scan task to be shown once the client receives the task from ePO.
When the ePO client tasks are visible, you should be able to see them in your VS console with a prefix of (managed).
These two items are actually local tasks, stored and configured in the Registry. ePO has no control over these stand-alone tasks. You can however, edit them using the McAfee Installation Designer (available with any VSE grant#). I have also seen people try to delete them entirely, but patches and plug-ins tend to recreate these items so it can be a real pain if you really want them gone.
In short, there (usually) isn't any problem allowing the end user to use these, but if you have goofy exclusions and legacy applications, then these could easily hose something up.
