hi Riley - I installed them both last week on the same server as we have dropped McAfee for NOD32. All clients are pointing to the server and I can view reports etc. Happy so far with Nod - esp the price per PC! Also installed the MS Exchange add-on which works well.

sounds brilliant, I will set to work on it tomorrow, as a bit tired tonight lol. :D

it looks like a brilliant suite of stuff with the remote administration console and server, my favorite the push install. :D

yea, we have droppped a mixture of norton, mcafe, avast (more or less the free ones coming with the computers have all expired)

Did you find that the default settings that they put in were allright?

the client defaults are all pretty much ok - nothing untoward or out of order. Have yet to use the push side of it but yep - good app so far. On its first scan of the Exchange server it picked up a few nasties in the Mail Marshal logs which was good to see. (McAfee seemed to have ignored these / not seen them).

With NOD you need to ensure you have put in all the file/folder exceptions that are required. Im not sure what these are, but if you dont do them properly it will bite you hard.

NOD is very very good IMO.

Wht do you mean by putting in all the file/folder exceptions that are required? do you have any more details?

Nod is very good, picked up on a few little virus's sitting in the system. :D does a good quick scan as well, and takes up very little system resources.

What are the recommended settings for an ESET security solution installed on a server? (3.0)

The settings described in this article are considered "best practices" when installing ESET NOD32 Antivirus or ESET Smart Security onto a server operating system or desktop computer used in a server role. These settings are designed to limit disruptions of normal server processes and potential conflicts with other applications, and will not limit the protection of your server.
  1. All settings will be configured in the Advanced Setup window. Press the F5 key to open this window.

  2. From the setup tree, click Antivirus and antispyware Real Time File System Protection and deselect the Network drives check box. Click the Setup... button next to ThreatSense engine parameter setup.

  3. Click Extensions and deselect the Scan all files check box. If this server is being used to run Microsoft Exchange, remove the following extensions from the excluded list by selecting them and clicking Remove: .EDB, .TMP, .EML


    Fig. 1-2

  4. Click OK to close the ThreatSense engine parameter setup window and save your settings.

  5. Click Email Protection Microsoft Outlook from the setup tree and deselect the Received email, Sent email, and Read email options.


    Fig. 1-3


  6. Click POP3 and deselect Enable email checking.
  7. Click Web access protection and deselect Enable web access protection. Then click HTTP and deselect the Enable HTTP checking option.

The final settings which need to be configured will vary depending on the software that is installed on the server. For instance, database and backup software should be excluded from the real-time and On-demand scanners. When entering the directory paths, make sure that *.* is added to the end of each entry. As an example, the following directory paths should be excluded if the server is running Microsoft Exchange:

%ProgramFiles%\Exchsrvr
\MDBData\*.*
%ProgramFiles%
\Exchsrvr\Mtadata\*.*
%ProgramFiles%
\Exchsrvr\Server_Name.log
%ProgramFiles%
\Exchsrvr\Mailroot\*.*
%ProgramFiles%
\Exchsrvr\Srsdata\*.*
%SystemRoot%
\System32\Inetsrv\*.*
%ProgramFiles%
\Exchsrvr\IMCData\*.*

See the links below for detailed information on creating real-time and On-demand scanning exclusions.
