You want to know what exclusions should be applied to a server running SAP.
- Customers should contact SAP Support for a full list of files and extensions that should be excluded from scans.
- One MSDN blog recommended that the following exclusions be set:
Note: Wildcard variables such as * and ? are not supported by Symantec Antivirus or Endpoint Protection so you cannot use the exclusions as they are above, you will need to edit them removing the * and ? when creating your exclusions.
IMPORTANT : Symantec does not advise excluding entire directories (such as the SAP database directory and subdirectories) from scanning as these pose a potential high security risk. Additionally you should not exclude any temp files or folders as these can be a target for security risks.
