Run a Post-Installation Scan

After installing Security Manager, you should run a scan to ensure your devices are virus free.

To set up a scan, you need to complete three steps:

  • Create a filter to identify Windows devices with Security Manager installed.
  • Create a task profile that will run scans during the hours that the system will typically be online. This will be added to a Rule.
  • Create a rule to automatically schedule future scans.

Create a filter

  1. In the navigation pane, click Configuration > Filters.
  2. Click Add and enter a new filter name.
  3. Click to select the Show in my Drop-Down check box.
  4. Click Advanced Mode.
  5. Configure the filter settings as shown below and click Save.

Create a scheduled task profile

  1. At the SO level, click Configuration > Scheduled Tasks > Profiles.
  2. Click Addand type a name for the scan.
  3. On the Details tab, click Add > Security Manager Scan > AV Defender Full Scan.
  4. On the Schedule tab, select Recurring from the Type drop-down list box.

    SolarWinds MSP recommends that you run a scan once a week.
