I'm having trouble finding documentation on what needs to be excluded in SAV, SEP for Backup Exec 2010.  I've unchecked scan when opened for backup and excluded beremote on the remote agents, but I'm not sure if there is anything else.  In previous versions of BE I also excluded the directory where the AOFO file was created, but with the new version that uses MS VSS for Win 2003 and up, I'm not sure where the VSS file is created and what to exclude.  After making the changes above some of my jobs increased in speed approximately double, but I still can't figure out why 2 of my 2003 servers jobs report upwards of 1800 mb/min and others are getting bet 600-800 mb/min.

Do you know the main threat actor types? Most attackers fall into one of four categories, each with their own favored tactics, techniques, and procedures.

i think the link i just supplied might be for another issue, this might be what you are looking for:

http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=TECH105418&locale=en_US

also try excluding the C:\program files\Symantec\Backup Exec from active scanning.

Ok, thanks.  both links end up at the same article.  So am I to assume that SEP automatically excludes MS VSP files since that is what BE uses now for AOFO?  I used to have to exclude the folder where the Symantec VSP files were created.

i believe so, just be sure to exclude any directory from active scanning that are related to BE, check program files, c:\documents and settings\all users as well.
