[SRX] Invalid notification options are displayed in the anti-virus fallback block notification



Article ID: KB26697 KB Last Updated: 28 Jan 2013Version: 2.0
This article describes the issue of invalid notification options being displayed in anti-virus fallback block notification. The following options are available and configurable from Junos 11.1 or later:

  • allow-email

  • administrator-email

  • display-host

The fallback-block (allow-email and administrator-email) and host name display features are displayed as follows:

[edit security utm feature-profile anti-virus kaspersky-lab-engine profile test1]
root@srx# set notification-options fallback-block ?
Possible completions:
  <[Enter]>                 Execute this command
  administrator-email       Administrator e-mail address
  allow-email               Administrator e-mail address
+ apply-groups              Groups from which to inherit configuration data
+ apply-groups-except       Don't inherit configuration data from these groups
  custom-message            Custom message for notification
  custom-message-subject    Custom message subject for notification
  display-host              Display hostname
  no-notify-mail-sender     Don't notify mail sender
  notify-mail-sender        Notify mail sender
  type                      Fallback block notification type
  |                         Pipe through a command
[edit security utm feature-profile anti-virus kaspersky-lab-engine profile test1]

Also, these options are configurable:

[edit security utm feature-profile anti-virus kaspersky-lab-engine profile test1]
root@srx# show notification-options
virus-detection {
  type message;
  custom-message "Virus detected on your mail and dropped";
  custom-message-subject "Virus detection notification";
fallback-block {
  type message;

  administrator-email "";
  custom-message "This mail is not scanned due to some problem on scan engine";
fallback-non-block {
  custom-message "this mail is not scanned by AV feature";

The above configuration will pass the configuration check:

root@srx# commit
commit complete <====Passed configuration check with NO ERROR

However, these options never work.

  • The features have not yet been implemented. However, only the configuration options were added.

  • These features are not supported on any type of anti-virus engine.

  • This is a cosmetic issue and has no impact on other UTM features.
Do not use these options; even though they can be found in the CLI.
