Hi Team

Thanks for seeking this post

9/8/2020 13:38:42 ***nas2116a EMERGENCY Nblade.vscanNoScannerConn: Vserver "svm_******16_prod" has no virus

scanner connection.






from av connector we can reach the filer and test is successful, no firewall policy

can reach the AV server from filer. 

how can i proceed further


Thanks and Regards






Could you please share the version of your Data ONTAP, Windows server, Antivirus software and SMB protocol used on the server etc. Can you check the logs on both the filer (mgwd logs) and AV scanner (debug logs) and see if you can share any error messages. You can also run a packet trace between the Vscan server and filer( vserver).
