Exclusions

Jump to solution
Dear all, Happy new Year Do anybody have information that could confirm exclusions work in same way in VSE and ENS Example: I have exclusions for MSME in VSE 8.8 now I have used Endpoint migration Assistant and have same exclusions in ENS. All exclusions have been migrated. But just like to know, the functionality will be same in ENS as it was in VSE. On-Access Scan, set to Configure different settings for High Risk and Low Risk processes and exclusions visible in Standard, as far as I know this will be handle same way in ENS as they were handled in VSE. Any input would be appreciated. Many thanks

Hello @wimme ,

Thank you for writing, I would like to add that the Exclusion arguments of specific files/folder or process would remain the same and should work as seen on both VSE and ENS. However, there are certain changes that we would need to look at the comparison of the policy itself when we migrate from VSE to ENS

I am adding the following documents which would shine more information regarding the Merging of the policies and also comparison

• How policies are merged during migration
https://docs.mcafee.com/bundle/endpoint-security-migration-guide-windows/page/GUID-F928CE48-0D0B-4A9...

• Merging specific to OAS scan settings
 https://docs.mcafee.com/bundle/endpoint-security-migration-guide-windows/page/GUID-93FDE92A-B2B2-486...

That being said, We do not have a specific article that could validate whether the exclusion placed is working as expected, however, I can think of using McAfee Profiler which would show us the list of process and files that the ENS would scan and the expectation is to not see the files/folders or process for MSME is excluded from scanning

About McAfee Profiler:

What is Profiler?
Profiler gathers statistics from systems that show how on-access scan is affecting the CPU. Profiler captures top files and processes that on-access scan accesses. Based on the data collected, administrators can decide if they want to exclude a file or a process from scanning to reduce the impact on the system.

How do I obtain the latest Profiler version?
Log on to the ServicePortal (https://support.mcafee.com), click the Tools tab, and scroll down to find the McAfee Profiler tool.

Please refer to the article: KB69683 which show more details about the usage. I guess this would help you achieve the concern
