Virus scan server error messages
In Operations Manager,Is there a way to monitor filer /etc/messages for errors ?
It cannot be done from the Operation Manager .
There are a couple of options.
You could write your own script to check the messages file for whatever you want. Or you can let the filer send the messages to the sylogd daemon of remote host and do your magic there.
We have an SNMP monitoring tool and the filers configured to send traps to it... The filers will send SNMP traps for vscan error messages.
Ho can you forward the vscan error messages to a remote syslof daemon
