Setting McAfee exclusions via ePO Server
Posted on 2008-10-09
We are running McAfee ePO server 4.0 and VirusScan client 8.5
I have some servers that need to be brought online shortly. The applications that are held on them need some specific exclusions set as regards AV scanning, otherwise they will become corrupt.
I was thinking of creating a container in the McAfee EPO server, creating a policy that excludes the appropriate files/folders, and then applying this policy to the container.
Is this the correct way of doing things? Or is it better to create the exclusions locally on the McAfee client on the servers themselves?
What I'm worried is that once McAfee is installed on these servers, it will instantly start scanning before the client has the chance to download and apply the correct policy from the ePO server.
Can anyone confirm what the process is?
This is an urgent question, so max points!
