    VirusScan 8.8 - Exclusions - Full On-Demand Scan - Servers


      Sorry if this has been covered a million times. I would like opinions and suggestions on a comprehensive list of exclusions for On-Demand, full scans on Windows servers.


      Yes, I know every environment is different.


      I have read the KB below and many other from both McAfee and other software vendors and incorporated them into the exclusions in the On-Access polices.



      Does anyone have a baseline or comprehensive list of file types that should be excluded in full On-Demand scans being performed on Windows servers?


      My understanding:

      - On-Demand scans should cover folders & files that have been excluded in the On-Access policies.

      - On-Demand scans should exclude file types such as MS SQL, Oracle and Exchange DBs.
