I'm just wondering what some of you are using for virus scanners -- a
of all of our shares indicated the presence of several viruses. It
be nice if our Samba server (running on Linux) could do periodic scans
then take some kind of corrective action (clean/remove virus or at least
e-mail the administrator).

We use Mcafee Netshield for Solaris (2.6 and 2.7). It is also available
for Linux and FreeBSD.
Mcafee keeps it very up-to-date and it works very well and is very
quick. We scan
approx 1 million files every night with it and it has served us well.
Logging and cleaning/isolation
of infected files works very well. The software is very configurable.
Works well in a two-tier
approach to virus control. ie On the PC and on the server.
