Recommended on access scan exclusions for endpoint encryption for PC 6.1.3

Can some one point me to the "Recommended on access scan exclusions for endpoint encryption for PC 6.1.3 or 6.1".  I have searched the Great God Goggle, I can find them for EEPC 5.x but not for 6.1.3 or 6.1.  I have also done a  McAfee KB's search.  When I try to go to the Mcafee KB it says Article Not Available.  Thanks for your help in advance.

there are none needed - EEPC6 presents itself in a different way than EEPC5, so there's no exclusions to be set.

Re: Recommended on access scan exclusions for endpoint encryption for PC 6.1.3

Hmmm, interesting.  Here's the information I received from support, when I had an issue with unable to decrypt a drive.  SR# 3-2006587215

Below is the exclusion in AV as promissed.

To avoid problems after installing Endpoint Encryption for PC (EEPC) 6.x on a client, McAfee recommends you create the following exceptions for every EEPC 6.0 client:

What to Exclude               Comments

Endpoint Encryption File System               Sometimes an anti-virus scanner might lock the Endpoint Encryption file system. This can cause data corruption because Endpoint Encryption tries to write data to the file system.

Endpoint Encryption for PC v6    Endpoint Encryption for PC 6.0 Product system files

Endpoint Encryption Agent                          Endpoint Encryption 6.0 Agent system files

PreBoot File System                                       Mark these files as unmovable when using third-party defrag tools.

BootCode                                                Mark these files as unmovable when using third-party defrag tools. See KB72568.

Recommended VirusScan Enterprise 8.x On-Access exclusions for supported EEPC 6.x clients Example of an ePO VirusScan Enterprise (VSE) exclusions policy:

What not to scan                                                                 Exclude Subfolder   Read/Write

c:\Program Files\McAfee\Endpoint Encryption for PC v6\             Yes            read / write

c:\Program Files\McAfee\Endpoint Encryption Agent\   Yes            read / write

\Device\SafeBootFSVolumes\Disk0\                                      Yes            read / write

c:\SafeBoot.FS                                                                  No             read / write

c:\SafeBoot.RSV                                                                               No             read / write

So is it none or do I follow the above recommendations?

I think this is a depreciated article specific to EEPC6.0, though I guess it's fair practice to not scan the executables or root folder files.

It can't do any harm, and I don't see how exclusions could make it easier/harder to decrpt a drive, but it's best to follow support info where possible.

Hi All,

Just stumbled across this article as I was about to ask the same for 6.2.  I think if no exclusions are required McAfee should look to note this in either a KB article or in the product documentation - would this be possible?  For new projects where EEPC is being rolled out, change control procedures tend to like information like this, and also something they can cross reference :-)

cheers,
