You want to know what scan exclusions can be applied to an Oracle database server running Symantec Endpoint Protection.
Exclusions could be set for the following extensions:
- .dbf - database file
- .log - Online Redo Log
- .rdo - Online Redo Log
- .arc - Archive log
- .ctl - Control files
Contact Oracle for a full list of files and extensions that should be excluded from scans.
Note: Wildcard variables such as * and ? are not supported by Symantec Antivirus or Endpoint Protection
IMPORTANT : Symantec does not advise excluding entire directories (such as the Oracle database directory and subdirectories) from scanning as this poses a potential high security risk. Additionally you should not exclude any temp files or folders as these can be a target for security risks.
