Apply a scanner policy on a single cluster

A scanner policy determines whether a scanner pool is active. You must activate a scanner pool before the Vscan servers that it defines can connect to an SVM.

About this task
  • You can apply only one scanner policy to a scanner pool.

  • If you created a scanner pool for all the SVMs in a cluster, you must apply a scanner policy on each SVM individually.

  1. Apply a scanner policy:

    vserver vscan scanner-pool apply-policy -vserver data_SVM -scanner-pool scanner_pool -scanner-policy primary|secondary|idle -cluster cluster_to_apply_policy_on

    A scanner policy can have one of the following values:

    • Primary specifies that the scanner pool is active.

    • Secondary specifies that the scanner pool is active only if none of the Vscan servers in the primary scanner pool are connected.

    • Idle specifies that the scanner pool is inactive.

    The following example shows that the scanner pool named SP on the vs1 SVM is active:

    cluster1::> vserver vscan scanner-pool apply-policy -vserver vs1 -scanner-pool SP  -scanner-policy primary
  2. Verify that the scanner pool is active:

    vserver vscan scanner-pool show -vserver data_SVM|cluster_admin_SVM -scanner-pool scanner_pool

    For a complete list of options, see the man page for the command.

    The following command displays the details for the SP scanner pool:

    cluster1::> vserver vscan scanner-pool show -vserver vs1 -scanner-pool SP
                                        Vserver: vs1
                                   Scanner Pool: SP
                                 Applied Policy: primary
                                 Current Status: on
             Cluster on Which Policy Is Applied: cluster1
                      Scanner Pool Config Owner: vserver
           List of IPs of Allowed Vscan Servers:,
    List of Host Names of Allowed Vscan Servers:, vmwin204-27.fsct.nb
                       List of Privileged Users: cifs\u1, cifs\u2

    You can use the vserver vscan scanner-pool show-active command to view the active scanner pools on an SVM. For the complete command syntax, see the man page for the command.
