Most people use some type of anti-virus software on their servers to protect against unwanted invasions. Having anti-virus security is good yet it can also come with a caveat when running in parallel with Storage Manager software. The problem we could encounter is file locks caused by real time scans and other security options such as blocked ports. This can cause problems with Storage Manager and monitoring. To get around this issue it is recommended to configure anti-virus software to avoid scans of the Storage Manager software and database.
It is recommended to add exclusions to your anti-virus and intrusion detection software when it is running on the same sever as Storage Manager.
