Virus Scan profile activated - implications?


we have a custom program that makes IDOCS into PDF's and then emails them.

if the Virus Scan profile /SCMS/KPRO_CREATE is not activated it fails saying that it isnt activated.

There is Note 1382313 that states not to activate it, only if you need it activate it.

So we do need it and activated it now but what else is now scanned as well?

And how come its needed when we create documents? So far I have only found it to be needed for incoming objects?

Thanks for thinking!

Though the profile is active, you need a virus scanner.

you need External Virus Scanner to be setup in the VSCAN--> Servers.

Few Virus Scanners are McAfee, Avira, and


Once the setup is done, use VSCANPROFILE---> Activate it and use VSCANTEST to test sample antivirus.

After the activation only the docuemnts which are using the profile are scanned, the idea is when you upload a documet to SAP then it is scanned.
