EPO Exclusions

Hello All,

I seem to be having problems with my exclusions on my applications servers.  I have setup a new on-access police with the following information
Item: E:\Application\, Exclude Subfolders: Yes, Read/Write
Overwrite client exclusions.

This seems to have populated down to the servers, however the application manager seems to belive that the exclusion is not working.

I have cross referenced the registry on the server and checked the folloiwng settings.

\Software\Network Associates\TVD\On Access Scanner\McShield\Configuration\Default
ExcludedItem_0  REG_SZ  5|10|
ExcludedItem_1  REG_SZ  3|15|E:\Application
ExcludedItem_2  REG_SZ  5|10|
ExcludedItem_3  REG_SZ  3|15|E:\Application\Dir

\Software\Network Associates\TVD\On Access Scanner\McShield\Configuration\High
ExcludedItem_0  REG_SZ  3|15|\\SERVERNAME\E:\Application
ExcludedItem_1  REG_SZ  3|15|\\SERVERNAME\Device\harddiskvolume5\Application
ExcludedItem_2  REG_SZ  3|15|\\SERVERNAME\F:
Exclusions         REG_SZ

\Software\Network Associates\TVD\On Access Scanner\McShield\Configuration\Low
ExcludedItem_0  REG_SZ  5|10|
ExcludedItem_1  REG_SZ  3|15|\\SERVERNAME\E:\Application
ExcludedItem_2  REG_SZ  3|15|\\SERVERNAME\Device\harddiskvolume5\Application
ExcludedItem_3  REG_SZ  3|15|\\SERVERNAME\F:

What is the correct way to configure the exclusions and is there a way to detect if they are working correctly?

Uncheck "Exclude Subfolders"....the way it is worded makes it sound like if you check it, the scan won't hit the subfolders, but it does!  Took me forever to realize that too.
