FEP 2010 on protected file server RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am considering changing from McAfee to FEP2010 on our file cluster which is protected by DPM2010.  In testing we found that FEP would not silently delete malware detected using the real-time scanner and would lock files until the user took action.  Apparently if the default action is set to delete via policy, FEP will delete the file after 10 minutes.

    The question is, how does DPM react to the file access being denied for 10 minutes and a sync kicks off?  Any problems with corruption / inconsistent replicas?

  • Hi,

     DPM 2010 has continue on failure logic that will basically skip any files that is cannot backup or synch. DPM will provide an alert that has a link to a file exception list which contains the names of the skipped files and an error code why it was skipped.   Usually when anti-virus grabs hold of a file, DPM will get an access denied, and you will see that error code associated with the skipped file(s).
