EMC Celerra virus scanning

After installing whatever EMC calls its anti-virus scanning agent now (started life as CAVA, then I think CEPA, then CEE- Celerra Event Enabler) a couple of things to watch:

  • Assign a domain user account (can just be a normal domain account, not need for raised privileges) to the EMC CAVA Service
  • Make sure this user gets the “log on as a service” right in gpedit.msc on the AV scanning box
  • Also make sure this user is in the local administrator’s group on that box (or at least I’ve found that our AV solution won’t work with CAVA if this isn’t the case)
