You say you completely uninstalled VSE and the process was still there!
Yep, after the uninstall of AV the process remains for some reason until the server is rebooted.
Right...i was assuming that you'd already rebooted.
- What OS are you running?
- Virtual Machines?
- What are these servers doing. DB, web servers, email etc?
Moved to VSE group.
OS version is Win Svr 2008
This has happened on two different servers running different applications, one was a AT server and the other a reporting server.
Did you every apply any of the recommended exclusions for servers?
The above link is an KB article listing various documents detailing best practice for VSE on servers.
By excluding certain processes you might be able to reduce the CPU usage of VSE.
All necessary exclusions were in place on both the servers, and we have other servers running the exact same applications and they do not have the same issue.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but if the issue was the exclusions the servers would still experieince the same CPU issues after the had been rebooted but surpringly the reboot seems to sort the issue out.
I think I'll have to wait and see if I come across another server that has the exact same issues so I can log a case with McAfee.
