Virus scanner registration

Virus scanners can be registered with the hosting storage system or any vFiler unit. A virus scanner that is registered with a vFiler unit always takes precedence over the virus scanner registered with the hosting storage system.

You can determine whether files on a vFiler unit are scanned by virus scanners registered with the hosting storage system or the vFiler unit. If a virus scanner is registered with a vFiler unit and is functional, the files on the vFiler unit are scanned by the scanner that is registered with the vFiler unit.

If the scanner that is registered with a vFiler unit becomes unavailable, then the hosting storage system's virus scanner scans the files on the vFiler unit on the following conditions: When the scanner local to the vFiler unit becomes available, it takes over from the hosting storage system's scanner.
