Policy Manager Scheduled Scan doesn't start/is not shown in the local F-Secure Client
Hello F-secure experts,
a question from Germany. As shown in the subject our Policy Manager Scheduled Scan doesn't start. Is not shown in the local F-Secure Client Status monitor but in the Policy Manager Console: /b2018-03-08 /t19:00 /rdaily /asap, scan local drives
SBS2011, Clients Win 7/64 Bit and Win10/64 Bit, both with latest MS-updates,
Policy Manager 13.10.84021,
Client security 13.10
Where can I search?
Scheduled Scans are added to the local windows tasks.
But please understand, that scheduled scans are from last millenium. today they do not give you any security but only eat performance and waste energy. A On-Access-Scan (Gatekeeper) with Reputation Service is state of the art (regardless of your AV-vendor!).
OK, understood. Not longer necessary because of active Gatekeeper, E-Mail scans ...
But what could be the reason, that also other settings are not transported/accepted as for example not to allow the user to change any settings.
And what could be the reason, that scheduled scans will not be included in local tasks?
Some other settings are indeed included in clients settings as our internal firewall rules.

This looks like a deeper problem with communication between host and PMS.
Either you give me a call (see contact data below) for a fast solution (in German).
or you open a support case with F-Secure including an FSDIAG from the host (in English).
Please, try /t19:00 /b2018-03-08 /rdaily /asap
To check the existence of Scheduled Scan task on the client side, run Windows Task scheduler as administrator, and check the content of "Task Scheduler" > "Task Scheduler Library" folder. It should contain the scheduled task with the name you'd specified in Policy Manager Console.
If the task is not present there, please, contact support.
Note: don't check in "F-Secure" sub-folder of "Task Scheduler Library", it contains other scheduled tasks, not related to Virus scanning.
I checked the client's task scheduler. Indeed the task was created each time as tested and it worked, scheduled scan started at time.
But further on the reason of my post was why the scheduled task is not shown in den local clients status window of F-Secure's Client Security (13.10)? In this obviously the Policy Manager settings are ignored, the scheduled scan is not shown as well as many other settings do not show any expected result.
Apart from this the Firewall-Settings of internal IP-addresses are included in the local window of F-Secure Clients.
What am I doing wrong in the Policy Manager console?
> why the scheduled task is not shown in den local clients status window of F-Secure's Client Security (13.10)?
Local clients UI shows information about scheduled scan configured locally in Settings UI > Scheduled scanning.
> Apart from this the Firewall-Settings of internal IP-addresses are included in the local window of F-Secure Clients.
Sorry, I don't understand. Could you, please, provide a screenshot, and explain with more details, what is wrong.
