The New Task context menu option
contains two variants of the On-demand scan. The first option is
On-demand scan (cleaning disabled) this
scan only creates a log, no action is taken on infected files.
The second option is On-demand scan
The On-demand Scan window contains the
same default settings for both variants, aside from the
Scan without cleaning option.
This option determines whether the scanner should or should not
clean infected files. The example below demonstrates how to create
an On-demand scan task.
||The Configuration Section drop-down
menu allows you to select the type of ESET product for which the
On-demand scan task is being defined. Select those that are
installed on target workstations.
NOTE: The Exclude
this section from On-demand scan option disables all
settings in the window for the selected product type they will
not be applied on workstations with the product type defined in
Configuration section. Therefore,
all clients with the specified product will be excluded from the
list of recipients. If the administrator marks clients as receivers
and excludes the product using the above-mentioned parameter, then
the task will fail with a notification that the task could not
be applied. To avoid this, the administrator should always specify
clients to which the task will be assigned.
||In Profile name you can select
a scanning profile to be applied for the task.
||In the Drives to scan section, select
the types of drives to be scanned on client computers. If the
selection is too general, you can add an exact path to objects to
be scanned. Use the Path field or the
Add Path button for this purpose.
Select Clear History to restore the
original list of drives to scan.
||Click Next to proceed to the dialog
windows labeled Select Clients and
Task Report which are described in
detail in the Tasks chapter.
||After the task is finished executing on the client
workstations, the results are sent back to the ERAS and they can be
viewed in ERAC in the Scan Log
