Enabling an on-access policy

You must enable an on-access policy on an SVM before its files can be scanned. If you created an on-access policy for all the SVMs in a cluster, you must enable the policy on each SVM individually. You can enable only one on-access policy on an SVM at a time.

Steps

  1. Enable an on-access policy: vserver vscan on-access-policy enable -vserver data_SVM -policy-name policy_name
    Example
    The following command enables an on-access policy named Policy1 on the vs1 SVM:
    cluster1::> vserver vscan on-access-policy enable -vserver vs1 -policy-name Policy1
  2. Verify that the on-access policy is enabled: vserver vscan on-access-policy show -instance data_SVM -policy-name policy_name
    For a complete list of options, see the man page for the command.
    Example

    The following command displays the details for the Policy1 on-access policy:

    cluster1::> vserver vscan on-access-policy show -instance vs1 -policy-name Policy1
    
                               Vserver: vs1
                                Policy: Policy1
                         Policy Status: on
                   Policy Config Owner: vserver
                  File-Access Protocol: CIFS
