Details
Public

For the Microsoft Exchange scan exclusion setting, the Security Agent (SA) will auto-detect the Exchange Server location when the client is restarted. This means that if you change the Exchange Server location, the Exchange exclusion setting will also be changed after the reboot. The hard code means the exclusion path for the Exchange Server is fixed. You will not be able to manually add or remove it; you can only enable or disable it.

If the Exchange database is moved or a new one is created, the exclusion files and folders will be updated only after performing "Update Now" from the SA console.

In WFBS 7.0, the SA updates the exclusion files and folders when the AMSP service starts.

Below are the exclusion folders of the Exchange Server:

  • Exchange databases and log files. (example: %PROGRAMFILES%\Exchsrvr\MDBDATA )
  • Virtual web server folders (example: %PROGRAMFILES%\Exchsrvr\Mailroot)
  • Internet Mail Connector files (example: %PROGRAMFILES%\Exchsrvr\IMCData)
  • Web storage system (example: M:\ if enabled)

Below are the exclusion folders of Exchange Server 2007:

  • Exchange databases and log files (this could be located anywhere in any disk).
  • Exchange Transport role data. (example: %Program Files%\Microsoft\Exchange Server\TransportRoles\Pickup|D:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\TransportRoles\data\IpFilter|D:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\TransportRoles\data\Queue|%Program Files%\Microsoft\Exchange Server\TransportRoles\data\Temp)
  • Exchange Messaging Tracking logs. (example: %Program Files%\Microsoft\Exchange Server\TransportRoles\Logs\MessageTracking)

By default, when the SA is installed on an Exchange Server (2000 or above), it will not scan Exchange databases and log files, virtual server folders, and the M drive.

Below is the exclusion list for the Exchange Server:
