Does creating a custom Citrix exception rule nullify any default exceptions?
I suppose this could also apply to Exchange and other systems that SEP is programmed to take into consideration automatically...
I have a Citrix farm and am looking at the Citrix-recommended exceptions for scanning. After reading the Symantec Endpoint Protection 11.0 "Terminal Server and Citrix Best Practices White Paper" where is says on page 7:
"As per terminal servers, if you wish to run the SEP firewall on a Citrix server then it is possible to do so without any issue using the default rule set in SEP 11.0 MR2 and beyond. If, however you wish to create a custom rule set for Citrix then the following processes and communications ports should be taken into account:"
Then it goes on to list a large number of exceptions...
I know that SEP automatically takes into account certain system, like Exchange - knowing what to scan and what not to scan. My question is this: does creating a custom rule nullify the automatic exceptions that SEP already knows about? It sure seems like that, based on my reading of that section in the white paper; otherwise, why would it say to add those exceptions only if creating a custom rule set?
