Disabling SEP 12.1
We are running through a reindex of our DMS, and they say it's running slower than it should. I have kept being asked to make sure certain folders are excluded from scanning, which they were. I (partly to make a point) ran smc -stop on the relevent servers, and verified that all Symantec services were stopped. The indexing performance has not changed.
Am I right that with all SEP services stopped that all AV functionality is completely disabled, and that the lack of any improvement in performance means that it could not be caused by SEP?
