Antivirus exclusions for DPM 2016/2019 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm looking for official documentation on antivirus exclusions for DPM 2016/2019.  Does it exist?  I thought I've seen it in the past, but cannot locate it any longer.

  • Hello!

    I'm afraid there is no new official documentation for DPM 2016 or DPM 2019 for the antivirus exclusions, the same exclusions as previously still apply.

    Run antivirus software on the DPM server

    DPM Server

    DPM installation folders:

    • %Program Files%\Microsoft System Center\DPM\DPM\XSD
    • %ProgramFiles%\Microsoft System Center\DPM\DPM\Temp\MTA
    • %Program Files%\Microsoft System Center\DPM\bin


    The following process should be excluded from real-time scanning:

    • DPMRA.exe
    • CSC.exe

    If the DPM servers has the MARS agent installed and pushing data to Azure, exclude the following folders:

    • %ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Azure Recovery Agent\bin
    • %ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Azure Recovery Services Agent\Scratch

    The following processes must be excluded from real-time scanning:

    • CBEngine.exe
    • CSC.exe

    Best regards,
