HI Experts
I can see SEP 12.1.4 support for windows server 2012 and exchange 2013 (https://www.symantec.com/connect/forums/sep-1214-support-windows-server-2012-and-exchange-2013), Endpoint Protection automatically adds exclusions when installed SEP 12.1.4  + exchange 2013 BUT how about SEP14 + Exchange 2013? Does it support as the same ?

Could you advise? Thanks

Hi Lap,

I think it is not supported automatically, you need to manually add the Exclusion range for Exchange 2013 in SEP 14.

It is strange and shocking but this document says the SEP 14 supports 2016.

Just a side-note...

Endpoint Protection automatically adds exclusions when installed
We have been bitten by this statement. When the SEP guy flew in for a meeting he said that even though document says exclusions suppository adds themselves bases on server type, we still had to add it manually.

The issue we experienced was database corruption (DNS/DHCP/AD/Exchange) due to missing exclusions

HI Shuan,

I am Astonished by hearning that but if they have publically posted the document and compatibility, I don't think you need manual work if your exchange and SEP are configured under supportability matrix.

@Lap: Because you are using exchange 2013 and SEP 14, I would still recommend you to use the manual exclusion or connect your SEP partner to have clarity on it. With Exchange 2016 it should work fine as given in the urls, I have shared earlier.

If the Files and processes are not excluded, it may put you into drastic situation.
