Turning virus scanning off for any access

You can turn off virus scanning for files in a share if the share is used only by trusted users, or if access speed 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 -novscan
    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 access this share. The setting is persistent across reboots.
    Note: You can set these share attributes for all CIFS user home directories by using cifs.homedir as the share name, as given in the following example.cifs shares -change cifs.homedir -novscan
