Applying a scanner policy on a single cluster

A scanner policy determines whether a scanner pool is active. You must make a scanner pool active before the Vscan servers that are defined in the scanner pool can connect to an SVM.

About this task


  1. Apply a scanner policy: vserver vscan scanner-pool apply-policy -vserver data_SVM -scanner-pool scanner_pool -scanner-policy primary|secondary|idle -cluster cluster_to_apply_policy_on

    A scanner policy can have one of the following values:

    • Primary specifies that the scanner pool is active.
    • Secondary specifies that the scanner pool is active only if none of the Vscan servers in the primary scanner pool are connected.
    • Idle specifies that the scanner pool is inactive.
    The following example shows that the scanner pool named SP on the vs1 SVM is active:
    cluster1::> vserver vscan scanner-pool apply-policy -vserver vs1 -scanner-pool SP  -scanner-policy primary
  2. Verify that the scanner pool is active: vserver vscan scanner-pool show -vserver data_SVM|cluster_admin_SVM -scanner-pool scanner_pool
    For a complete list of options, see the man page for the command.
    The following command displays the details for the SP scanner pool:
    cluster1::> vserver vscan scanner-pool show -vserver vs1 -scanner-pool SP
                                        Vserver: vs1
                                   Scanner Pool: SP
                                 Applied Policy: primary
                                 Current Status: on
             Cluster on Which Policy Is Applied: cluster1
                      Scanner Pool Config Owner: vserver
           List of IPs of Allowed Vscan Servers:,
    List of Host Names of Allowed Vscan Servers:, vmwin204-27.fsct.nb
                       List of Privileged Users: cifs\u1, cifs\u2
    You can use the vserver vscan scanner-pool show-active command to view the active scanner pools on an SVM. For the complete command syntax, see the man page for the command.
