Forefront on a SQL Application Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been searching for this answer all day and haven't found it so here goes:

    Is it supported/recommended/stupid to install forefront client security (in standalone mode in this case) on an application server running SQL?  While we're at it, how about one running SharePoint?

    I know in the past A/V software side-by-side with SQL was either not recommended or recommended with a solid understanding of how to add the proper exceptions.  Is this still the case for forefront?  If so where can I find information on how to set it up properly?

    Whew, lots of questions.  Thanks!

  • Yep FCS does fine on a SQL server.  You should add exceptions for your db folders probably but I don't believer we try to scan inside those anyway but not sure on that.  Same goes for sharepoint.

  • Hi!

    Check out this documnet from Microsoft. It will tell you what exclusions to make for common Microsoft products such as SQL, Share Point etc



    Good luck!
