Configuring UNC path exclusions in ServerProtect for Windows (SPNT)

    • Updated:
    • 15 Mar 2021
    • Product/Version:
    • ServerProtect 5.8
    • Platform:
    • N/A
Summary

Learn how to enable the UNC path exclusions and set up a directory exclusion. This article can be used to resolve the following sample scenarios:

  • ServerProtect service fails to start after applying a patch and environment variable cannot be added to the Exclusion List.
  • The actual directory is excluded in the ServerProtect scanning but shadow copies of the directory are still scanned. As a result, virus notifications are sent every time a virus in a shadow copy is detected. The following is a sample notification:
    Control Manager [SERVER_name] notification: Virus found action result.
    The first and second virus scan actions have been unsuccessful for the virus detected in /Servers/Server_name/Exchange bridgeheads/Server_name.
    Check and update your components to the latest version.
