    MS Lync, Exchange 2010 and AD exlusions

      Hi could anyone possibly assist with supplying me with the suggested exclusions to be implemented fior Microsft Lync, Exchange 2010 and AD.

       

      I know there is suggestions from Microssoft but that is a bit wide as it will pose a risk to the severs.

          The rule of thumb is to exclude nothing, unless you have to.

          And, if you have to, utilize the flexibility of the scanning configuration to create as small a hole as possible.

           

          For the latter, that could mean only excluding writes, or reads of specific files or perhaps a file type (database files for example should be excluded from both read _and_ write scanning).

          Better still is to leverage the hi/low risk profiles, giving more granularity i.e. applying exclusions to specific processes only, again for Read _or_ Write when possible, both if appropriate.

           

          Applying these concepts to the MSFT recommendations you can create a sound scanning configuration.
