That's the same advice I just received from Trend. I did ask to speak with their AS/400 specialist to see what iSeries specific tuning recommendations may be made. I am still waiting on the call back. Any concerns about an incremental scan missing something? For example, I run a DBSCAN after I've received an email with the latest and greatest virus, and prior to Trend having a new pattern file for it. (Granted, they're very diligent and that is a small window of opportunity, but if you'd see all the hits that DBSCAN did get...). Then I run a DBSCAN after getting a new pattern file, it will not rescan the databases with that latest virus, and I'm toast.
