Have you tried adding the execs AD group into the 'Priviledged Users' group in the DLP policy screen?
I believe being a member of this group overrides all policies.
Note: Not sure if this functionality is unique to DLP 9.2 on ePO 4.6
thanks again Tristan. will give it a try.
btw, i have included and excluded some ou's and groups in one single user assignment group and it seems to be working fine.
Works good for me.
All i did was to include the include and exclude groups (or ou's or users) in the same user assignment rule rather can creating different rules for include and exclude. Works good (though currently testing with just 2 users).
