Turning scanning off for read-only access

You can turn off virus scanning for files in a share if the files are restricted to read-only mode or speed of access is more important than safety.

About this task

Virus scanning for a share is turned on by default.


  1. Enter the following command: cifs shares -change share_name -novscanread
    share_name is the name of the share for which you want to turn off virus scanning.
    The application does not perform a virus scan when clients open files on this share for read access. The setting is persistent after reboot.
