You can leverage base images to build virtual machines for your virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) environment. The Symantec Virtual Image Exception tool lets scans ignore base image files, which reduces the resource load on disk I/O. It also improves CPU scanning process performance in your VDI environment.
Before you enable this feature in Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager, first run the Virtual Image Exception tool on the base image files. The Virtual Image Exception tool marks the base image file by adding an attribute. If the file changes, this attribute is removed. This tool is found in the /tools/VirtualImageException folder on the Symantec Endpoint Protection product disc.
This feature is disabled by default. Enable the feature so that when your client scans a file, it looks for this attribute. If the base image file contains the attribute, the client does not scan the file.
