    To Exclude specific folders under Users profile using RegEx in McAfee Security 1.0 from ePO:

     

    /Users/.*/<your folder path>/.*

     

     

     

    To exclude the VMDK files residing anywhere in the machine:

     

    .*\.vmdk - locally

     

    /.*\.vmdk - from ePO

     

     

     

    Some more examples for exclusions in MSM1.0/VSMAC 9.0 which utilizes RegEx

     

    Exclude any file based on extension

     

    .*\.ext - locally

     

    /.*\.ext - from ePO

     

     

     

    Eg: To exclude .log files from scannning

     

    .*\.log - locally

     

    /.*\.log - from ePO

     

     

     

    Excluding Multiple files based on Extensions

     

    .*\.(EXT)(EXT) - Locally

     

    /.*\.(EXT)(EXT) - From ePO

     

     

     

     

     

    Note: "/" in front is required when pusing down policy from ePO because of a sanity check that happens at ePO level.
