McAfee exclusion query

Hi Guys

We are running McAfee 8.5i on our servers with EPO 4.0

We have a group set up in EPO for a certain type of application servers. The exclusions set for this group, at the moment, are;

?:\Appfolder1\
?\Appfolder2\

We will soon be migrating to a new version of the application where the location of the install will change to C:\Appfolder3

There are about 10 of these application servers, so we will be upgrading them one by one.

My question is can we set the following exclusions for this group;

?:\Appfolder1\
?\Appfolder2\
?:\Appfolder3\

This will cover all the servers, whether they are on the latest version or not, but obviously there won't be an Appfolder1 and Appfolder2 for those servers that have already been migrated, and there won't be an Appfolder3 for those servers not yet migrated.

Will the non-precence of these folders, yet still having an exclusion set, cause an issue for McAfee?

I hope I am making sense :)

Morning,

I'd probably use **\Appfolder**

But no, that's not going to cause any issues

Hello Si,

Hmm, probably a bad example of mine...

Let's say Appfolder1 = KamApp1
Appfolder2 = ExpertExchApp
Appfolder3= MSApp1
Appfolder4 = CapitalApp1

So - basically - there is no common wording between them, can I still set this or will McAfee get confused by trying to set exclusions where the actual folder doesn't exist?

Thanks!

OK, gotcha

Happy Easter btw !

McAfee won't have a problem with an exclusion that doesn't exist, it will just move on

You will have to set 3 or 4 exclusions, but that shouldn't be too laborious !

Cheers
Si
