Ask a representative of Trend Micro :)

Actually, I'd like to point out that when using samba-vscan please make
sure you've purchased the correct license. Some AV companies prohibit
the use of a workstation version on a server. Or if you purchased a
10-user license, but your Samba server serves say 100 users, this would
violate the license, too.
