If you have a look at McAfee KnowledgeBase - VirusScan Enterprise For Linux 1.9 Standalone Configuration Guide
This gves the major parts of what you can do from cli and influencing config/behaviour.
For ODS - this is not possible - if the machines are ePO managed then can create Tasks for VSEL and these can be sent down to local machine to be run by in conjunction with VSEL by McAfee Agent.
Thank you for the reply. I will review this document, and see if I can apply it to my system. The one thing I forgot to add is that this is an isolated enclave, with no external connectivity, and no ePO server.
