Server/File Security - Command-line scanner

Go to solution Solved by kurco,

Recommended Posts


We are currently in the progress of integrating ESET Server Security into our systems. Users of our system (which previously used another Anti Malware Product) need to be able to trigger malware scans with varying parameters.

We discovered the Command-line scanner (/opt/eset/efs/sbin/cls/cls) on our test installation and believe that this tool is a perfect match for our use case.

This forum post suggests that the Command-line Scanner was documented (and presumably intended to be used) for earlier versions for Server/File Security for Linux:


But the current documentation does not mentions this tool.

Which brings us to our question:

Is the usage of the Command-line scanner still supported by ESET?

Hi Marcos,

thanks for your quick response. But I have to say that this does not answer my question. I know about the odscan command.

My question was: Does ESET support the usage of the Command-line scanner that is located at /opt/eset/efs/sbin/cls/cls?

Hi Sebastian,

cls is currently no longer in active development and I can't guarantee you, that it will be present in further releases of ESS. I understand, that it is more convenient way, when used in scripts. But I would rather prefer executing odscan with custom profiles (containing predefined settings) and if needed parse scan logs.
