  • That is what the profiles are for...just to give you times when you can have updates run.

    If you MUST create your own update procedure, KAV can be updated by using the AVP command line functions

    AVP /?  will get you a list of what works

    AVP UPDATE       ---  will update

    AVP START Scan_My_Computer    -- kicks off the full computer scan

  • Hey Kaseya-Anti-Virus-Super-Experts!

    We have several things to do in the night ... after hours ... ;)

    How can we start the UPDATE AND FULL SCAN within a procedure?

  • Hello Jeff.

    Thanks for that great hint.

    It would be great if we get with KAV a procedure to kick that of at a scheduled time or followed by several other scripts. It's missing in the kaseya-framework :)

    But for now i will create that one ... how can i find avp to run in a procedure? the path is on each computer another one?
