VSE 8.8 readme contains:
When you configure a drive to exclude from on-access scanning, use a UNC path, not a mapped network drive. For example, if you type Z:, for the mapped network drive in the Set Exclusions dialog box, the files in the mapped drive are not excluded from on-access scanning.
Workaround: To exclude a network drive from on-access scanning use a UNC path, not a mapped network drive. (546966)
Have been thinking about a similar issue for a while. For certain reasons, we have "Scan Network Drives" enabled, but have excluded certain drive letters from scanning. The issue occurs when those drive letters don't match a server that we control via AV.
Let's say I have a large number of servers (that have AV on them) with a naming pattern of xxxxCORPxxnnn (where x is a letter and n is a number. Numbers could range from 1 to infinite).
What would the correct wildcard OAS exemption be?
I would expect that exclusion to work.
