The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A system receives a scan request for a storage object in a clustered storage system. The system determines if an anti-virus (AV) server is executed on a preferred node in the storage system. The system requests information describing a plurality of nodes on the clustered storage system from a service manager. This information is used to select an alternate AV server which is executed on a substitute node if the initial AV server is not executed on the preferred node. The scan request is sent to the initial AV server if the initial AV server is executed on the preferred node. The scan request is sent to an alternate AV server if the initial AV server is not executed on the preferred node."
