SEP Scan Schedule: "Scan for up to"

Created: 05 Oct 2012 • Updated: 05 Oct 2012 | 3 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.


In the "Virus and Spyware Policy" you can configure the scan schedule.

One of the parameters available is under "Scan Duration" -> " Scan for up to". Here you can specify how long a scan can run before it gets terminated. I would like to configure the Server Scan Schedule to start at 4am on Sunday and give it a "Scan for up to" value of 24 hours. This will terminate the scan on  Monday 4am. Normally 24 hours should be long enough for most scans to complete. However: how do I identify Servers that were not finished yet after 24hours and got their Scan process terminated?

Is there a central LOG-file which collects this info?

Thanks a lot for your help in advance!

You can find it in the Scan log on the client

In the SEPM, go to Monitors >> Logs and set the log to show Scan

You can filter as needed to show exactly  what you need

Check this thread

Thanks In Advance
