    AV Exclusions

    LANDESK AV should be carefully tested before applying to your production servers.

     

    LANDESK AV is intended to protect the server and its file system.  It is not designed to scan server applications like Microsoft Exchange.  Application servers typically need exclusions added to prevent LANDESK AV from negatively affecting server performance.

     

    Kaspersky Labs provides a list of typical exclusions needed for various server applications: http://usa.kaspersky.com/sites/usa.kaspersky.com/files/Kaspersky%20Lab%20Scan%20Exclusions.pdf

     

    If your server's application is not listed there, it is recommened to get a list of exclusions from the applicaiton's Vendor.

     

    LANDESK also has its own list of exclusions if applying LANDESK AV to a core server: http://community.landesk.com/support/docs/DOC-6920
