Applies to Kaspersky Anti-Virus 8.0 for Linux File Servers

The tab On-demand scan allows configuring scan tasks for Kaspersky Anti-Virus 8.0 for Linux File Server. There are three default tasks:

  • On-demand scan (scan entire file system)

  • On-demand scan all shared objects (scan all mounted objects)

  • Scan Quarantined Objects

Click Add to create a new scan task:

Enter Task Name. Check the box Use wizard if you want to configure its settings before creating.

The Wizard contains several tabs:

  • Scan area: navigate to a path or type it into the corresponding field, and choose File system type (local, mounted/shared NFS/SMB, all mounted/shared);

  • Security settings: select a Security Level (Recommended, Low, High), types of compound objects to scan (archives, mail databases, packed objects, plain mail, SFX archives), actions to apply to infected/suspicious objects (an action may also depend on threat type); scan mode (Smart check, when opened, when opened and modified), optional logging settings (log non-infected and/or packed files). You can also enable the heuristic analyzer, set its depth, limit scan scope by file size and/or time.

  • Objects masks: allows configuring allowlist and denylist of scanned files by mask, and exclude objects by threat name;

  • Schedule: this tab allows scheduling scan task execution:

    • Start (at specified time, after databases update, on Anti-Virus startup);

    • Start Periodically (either choose a frequency or set a particular date/day/month/year) or just Once (set a particular date);

    • Check the box Run on schedule and click OK to activate the schedule.

  • Click ОК once you are through with configuring the task.
