Could you help me to get the info in Question title? I would like to get the vscan user guide and officially supported third-party anti-virus software list for Amazon FSx for NetApp ONTAP.

  • Thank you for the information for ONTAP. Let me comment for each info.

    1. Do you know the AWS website will be corrected and linked these information as expected? It's not linked at this moment and it's better to extract the procedure for AWS customer.

    2. These 4 anti-virus software officially support for FSx for ONTAP? I know these vendors supports for ONTAP, but FSx for ONTAP is the different story. Formal testing and support of anti-virus software for FSx for ONTAP are carried out by the each vendor, so do you have any source that these vendors support for FSx for ONTAP?

Amazon FSx for NetApp ONTAP fully supports ONTAP’s “vscan” feature, which you can use with AWS Partner antivirus applications to automatically scan new files as they’re written to your file system. See the Amazon FSx documentation for instructions on how to configure vscan. Please refer to the below documentation /Antivirus section: https://aws.amazon.com/fsx/netapp-ontap/features/

Hope this addressed both the above queries.
