Symantec Mail Security for Microsoft Exchange freezing server! 500 POINTS!
Posted on 2004-09-14
I am running a windows server 2003 system with exchange server 2003 and also symantec mail security 4.5 for microsoft exchange. I am having problems with symantec running scans so frequently throughout the day that the busy light on the server stays on for hours long and slows the server down.
I used a real time file monitor to see what programs were running and I noticed that "store.exe:2768", "SAVFMSESrv.exe:2020" and "SAVFMSESp.exe:6304" constantly run and force the busy light to stay lit on the computer. I have checked to make sure that the symantec scan only runs at midnight. I have auto-protect enabled but that should not be causing the busy light to stay lit like that and slow the server down.
I have over 1.3GB of RAM. Somebody please help!
I need to stop these scans from running so frequently.
