HNAS interaction with Mcafee Virus scan engines

Migrated from HNAS version 11.2.3319.14 to  11.3.3450.14 and encountered problems immediately with Virus scanners not responding to request for scan from HNAS. Currently using RPC/SMB connections between scanners and HNAS and scanners are installed on Vmware Windows 2008 systems.


Scanners eventually de-register themselves with HNAS and once our four scanners de-register, no file sharing activity is available.

We originally had the same problem with HNAS Version 10.2 , which was the initial installed version. After many months of back and fro, HDS to Macfee, an upgrade to 11.2.3319.14, magically fixed the problem.


I would like to know if there is any other companies out there with similar HNAS versions and Mcafee, who have encountered problems and solved them..
