DTAM059 - McAfee VirusScan On-Demand scan must be configured to record scanning activity in a log file.


Log management is essential to ensuring that computer security records are stored in sufficient detail for an appropriate period of time. Routine log analysis is beneficial for identifying security incidents, policy violations, fraudulent activity, and operational problems. Logs are also useful when performing auditing and forensic analysis, supporting internal investigations, establishing baselines, and identifying operational trends and long-term problems.


From the ePO server console System Tree, select the Systems tab, select the asset to be checked, select Actions, select Agent, and select Modify Tasks on a Single System. From the list of available tasks in the Task Name column, with the assistance of the ePO SA, identify the weekly on demand client scan task. In the same row as the client scan task under review, under the Task Type column, ensure it is an 'On Demand scan' and in the Status column, ensure that the status is 'Enabled'. In the Task Name column, select the weekly on demand task. Under the Reports tab, locate the 'Log to file:' label. Select the 'Enable activity logging and accept the default location for the log file or specify a new location' option. Select Save.
