    McAfee Slows down Backup Exec backups

    tpebis

      We noticed backup exec was taking longer than usual to complete backups (9 hours more than usual). So we uninstalled McAfee from the server that has backup exec, and the backups were back to its normal run times.

       

      Our server is running Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise SP1

      Backup Exec 2012 v14.0

       

      The McAfee product we are using is McAfee SaaS, and are managing it through the Web Console.

       

      Is there any way to exclude Backup Exec from McAfee? So that its not monitoring its processes or services? Or even why would it be causing backup exec to slow down?

       

      thanks.
