Re: McAfee VSE Exclustion

I have a theoretical way but i've yet to test it.

Basically it revolves around the XML export

1. Export the On-Access Default Process policy and the on-demand task to XML

2. Manually edit the XML and copy and paste the exclusion section from the policy to the task

3. Import the task

The exclusion section of each exported XML is that same format so should be transferable.

Re: McAfee VSE Exclustion

There isn't any automated way to do this that I know of.  You will have to recreate your exclusions.  The good news is that you should only have to do this once

Re: McAfee VSE Exclustion

The whole idea is to NOT do what you've asked. If you exclude things from the On Access Scanner then you should definitley be scanning it with the On Demand Scanner. Otherwise you've created a permanent hole in your systems.

Re: McAfee VSE Exclustion

Understood Peter, but there are some applications where exceptions need to be made...I don't agree with them, but they do exist.
