We are using GroupShield for Exchange
Exchange 2000 sp3
Windows 2000 SP4
VirusScan Enterprise 7i, Mcafee

My backup was failing on my exchange server using veritas.  Only to find the actual problem ended up one folder in all
\documents and settings\all users\application data\network associates\common framework\agentevents
the folder is almost a couple gigs.
I can't figure out why I have all these files.
There does not appear to be any viruses running, a few get caught, but none getting caught every second.
I think the problem is with Alert Manager but not sure, how do I find out more?
has anyone had to deal with this.

I'm not sure which software you are getting these files on but...

The files created by VS7 are the alerts that you cn read remotely, you should be able to configure AlertManager to restrict the amount of entries that it keeps.

Do you use ePO?

Are you using VS7 and GSE on your exchange server?

Firstly I hope you have excluded all your Exchange folders from the VS7 scans, failure to do so can corrupt your Exchange database.

As the troublesome files do not appear on my Exchange server I guess they are created by VS7.

If you server is only used for Exchange then you can remove VS7, assuming all your PC's are protected.

Can you post the contents of one of the files, assuming it's readable?

Turning off alert manager solved hte problem for now. I will post another with the contents of the file.
It takes time to enumerate a directory with 500,000 files.
