Troubleshooting

There are a variety of virus scan errors:

  • Virus scan server error
  • No virus scan profile is selected as the default.
  • Virus scan errors should not block the deployment process. The virus scan should be configured in such a way so as not to disturb the deployment process.
  • Also, a default virus scan profile should be selected in the system or switched off entirely.
  • See SAP Note: https://launchpad.support.sap.com/#/notes/3052386
