Forefront affecting network access RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    Got this problem where when running a full scan on desktop/laptop computers in our network, its impacting the performance of the network as in access to network shares is very very slow. we proved this by moving the scan time from midday to 5.00pm & the problem moved to the new time.

    i have added the adm from the Forefront blog to disable scanning of mapped drives but that has not helped. at this point i am not entirely sure where to trouble shoot. one of the things i am considering is changing the scan policy so that it does not query WSUS for latest definition file prior to running the scan.

    We have around 2500 computers in the environment & this problem has only appeared in the last month or so. We are running in a 2 server topology with a separate WSUS server.

    any suggestions on what to troubleshoot will be appreciated.
