Scheduled scans are cleared on Endpoint Protection for Linux
Last Updated September 12, 2015
User-created scheduled scans with names which begin with the prefix "clientscheduledscan_" are deleted on Symantec Endpoint Protection for Linux clients. The below example shows a scan being created with this prefix.
After creating the scan, it is possible to view the scan's information.
# ./sav scheduledscan -n clientscheduledscan_1
Scan Name: clientscheduledscan_1
Type: Local Scan
Frequency: Weekly - Mon at 1:00

Later attempts to view the scan's information fail.
# ./savscheduledscan -n clientscheduledscan_1
Scan not found
The scan name prefix "clientscheduledscan_" is reserved and is used when a Symantec Endpoint Protection for Linux client receives a scheduled scan in a policy from the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager. For this reason, scans created manually by users should not use the following prefixes in the scan name.
