SEPM console - Scan Failures

Created: 30 Nov 2009 • Updated: 21 May 2010 | 3 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hi Gang,

I have deployed SEP client to approx 80 servers. 

At the SEPM console Security Status I am getting the big red cross because of 'Scan Failures'

Our policy for servers is not to schedule scans (active or full), this is becuase we have several Citrix and TS servers and need scheduled scans switched off.

The following shows exactly the problem I have:

Scan Failures

Computers not Recently Scanned: 39
Total Computers: 79
Failure Ratio: 49%
Maximum Acceptable Failure Ratio: 10%

My questions are:

Can I disable Scan Failures?
Can I increase Maximum Acceptable Failure Ratio to 100%?

Thanks
