Any anti-virus software on OES 2?

Hi all,

Urgently looking for sharing of information - which anti-virus does you or your customer use on OES 2 file server that also has cluster components installed?

Am working on OES2 upgrade (OES 2 SP2a). Once installing Symantec Antivirus on the server (with auto-protect enabled), OES2 server would hang. Based on our testing this depends on what components we install in OES2:
- Hangs if OES2 has file server components (NSS NCP CIFS) with Novell cluster services
- No hang on Print server (iPrint) without cluster components

This is not related to exclusion of scan folder etc, as it hangs shortly after SAV is installed before we have an opportunity to set exclusions.
Does not hang if installs SAV without auto-protect (then what's the point of installing it).

Symantec Support confirmed this is a known bug and no commitment to fix.
Appreciate it very much if anyone can share your "success" cases using ANY anti-virus on a OES 2 server with cluster.

Regards,

SS

We don not have a cluster but Trend Micro seems to work well for our company.

I use McAfee VirusScan Enterprise for Linux 1.6.0 with OES2SP2 64 Bit
Cluster.

But i have some Issues with Realtime Scanning (scan's all Files on NSS
Volumes what he shouldn't do), but i didn't find enough time to take a
deeper look on it.

On 2 other Nodes i can't login into the Webinterface or hangs on a
running update.

So I disabled it for a while.

Oh dear.

We run four OES2 SP2a 64 Bit Clusters with Sophos Antivirus, no problems so far.

It's great to know that!
Do you have real-time protection enable to scan NSS?
Would you have the version number of the Sophos?

Re: Any anti-virus software on OES 2?

The subject will be more constructive, if somebody spreads the loading on the server with an antivirus. For example (Trend Micro with realtime scan) sar -b (average)
tps rtps wtps bread/s bwrtn/s
7000 5000 2000 35000 15000
