Setting exclusions in McAfee

Hi All

We are running McAfee 8.5i clients and EPO 4.0. Let's say the default on-access scan policy is to scan everything.

I have a server that needs exclusions set. I guess I can either:

i) create a container in the EPO console, apply a policy that has these exclusions, then move the server to the container
ii) set the exclusions on the server

Is one method preferred over the other?

Cheers
Dilan

Morning Dilan

If it's just one machine, then I would create a new policy with the exclusions and then assign that policy to the single machine.  You can do this from within the machine details page from within Systems

If it's more than one machine, I would create the container and assign the policy to the container

If you only set the exclusions on the server, then each time the McAfee agent enforces the policies, then you will need to reset them

Does that make sense ?

Hello

"If you only set the exclusions on the server, then each time the McAfee agent enforces the policies, then you will need to reset them"

How often does the McAfee agent 'enforce' the policies? I'm not sure  by what you mean by enforcing them?

Thanks for the advise!

No worries :-)

The ePO Agent normally enforces policies every 5 minutes, so if you set a manual exclusion on the client, ePO will override it with it's policy settings every 5 mins
