Antivirus Exclusions for SharePoint



   Antivirus Exclusions for SharePoint

     When I am working for the projects, we have a requirement for antivirus exclusions of SharePoint and SQL. Many Administrators think that, exclusion is really required for SharePoint? Here in the article I am providing the details as per my experience.

     Explanation

     We must exclude some of  These folders from antivirus scanning when you use file-level antivirus software in SharePoint. If these folders are not excluded, you may see unexpected behavior. You may receive "access denied" error messages when files are uploaded.
 
    I am providing the List of folders which need to exclude as per the product.

SharePoint Server 2013

You may have to configure the antivirus software to exclude the Drive:\Program Files\Microsoft Office Servers folder from antivirus scanning for SharePoint Server 2013. If you do not want to exclude the whole Microsoft Office Servers folder from antivirus scanning, you can exclude only the following folders:
  • Drive:\Program Files\Microsoft Office Servers\15.0\Data
    (This folder is used for the indexing process. If the index files are configured to be located in a different folder, you also have to exclude that location.)
  • Drive:\Program Files\Microsoft Office Servers\15.0\Logs
  • Drive:\Program Files\Microsoft Office Servers\15.0\Bin
  • Drive:\Program Files\Microsoft Office Servers\15.0\Synchronization Service
  • Any location in which you decided to store the disk-based binary large object (BLOB) cache (for example, C:\Blobcache).
SharePoint Server 2010

You may have to configure your antivirus software to exclude the Drive:\Program Files\Microsoft Office Servers folder from antivirus scanning for SharePoint Server 2010. If you do not want to exclude the whole Microsoft Office Servers folder from antivirus scanning, you can exclude only the following folders:
  • Drive:\Program Files\Microsoft Office Servers\14.0\Data
    (This folder is used for the indexing process. If the Index files are configured to be located in a different folder, you also have to exclude that location.)
  • Drive:\Program Files\Microsoft Office Servers\14.0\Logs
  • Drive:\Program Files\Microsoft Office Servers\14.0\Bin
  • Drive:\Program Files\Microsoft Office Servers\14.0\Synchronization Service
  • Any location in which you decided to store the disk-based binary large object (BLOB) cache (for example, C:\Blobcache)
