ProcedureHow to Enable Virus Scanning on a File System

Use the file system command to allow virus scans of files. For example, to include a ZFS file system in a virus scan, use the zfs(1M) command.

  1. Become superuser or assume an equivalent role.

    Roles contain authorizations and privileged commands. The ZFS file system allows some administrative tasks to be delegated to specific users. For more information about Delegated Administration, see the ZFS Administration Guide. For more information about roles, see Configuring RBAC (Task Map). To configure a role with the Primary Administrator profile, see Chapter 2, Working With the Solaris Management Console (Tasks), in System Administration Guide: Basic Administration.

  2. Enable virus scanning on a ZFS file system, for example, pool/volumes/vol1.

    # zfs set vscan=on path/pool/volumes/vol1
