1. On our desktops we had to exclude a remote login tool (Remote-Anything) as it was getting removed.
2. We are using Symantec Backup Exec, our backup's took forever until we excluded paths and change scan settings as per McAfee\Symantec recommendation <- You can Google the list
3. Sending mail via script from servers was blocked (allow mass mailing or programs to get around this)
4. We have a few VSE 8.8p1 eventvwr errors on our servers which we didn't have with 8.7.
Can't think of anything else at the moment, performance seems fine.
Your best bet is obviously pick a test server or a server which has the most minimum impact on the buisness and see how it goes.
Hi kevin_27, there was a big performance improvement between VirusScan 8.7 and VirusScan 8.8 (specially due to persistent file caché) that can be interesting for you to know:
I have to say that it really improved machine's performance on 99% of them
