In some situations not all file types are scanned, even when Sophos Anti-Virus for NetApp Storage Systems has been configured to scan all file types.
First seen in Sophos Anti-Virus for NetApp Storage System
The lists of configured extensions on the filer overrides any extensions configured on the server running Sophos Anti-Virus for NetApp.
To see which file types are sent to the antivirus server for scanning, at the command prompt on the filer, type:
To add an extension to this list, type
vscan extensions include add <extension>
where <extension> is the extension you want to add.
vscan extensions include add hta
will add .hta to the list of extensions to be scanned.
Similar steps can be followed to exclude extensions, for example:
vscan extensions exclude add edb
