Antivirus configuration overview


This content describes how to use NetApp virus scanning, called Vscan, to protect data from being compromised by viruses or other malicious code. It shows you how to use on-access scanning to check for viruses when clients access files over CIFS, and how to use on-demand scanning to check for viruses immediately or on a schedule.

You should use this content if you want to work with Vscan in the following ways:

  • You want to use the ONTAP command-line interface (CLI), not ONTAP System Manager or an automated scripting tool.

    Vscan is not supported by System Manager.
