    I'm looking to upgrade our clients copy of Nod32 Buisnes V2.7 to Smart security V3.0. Our client has about 100 computers with several Exchange servers and windows servers. Will this be a simple process and is smart Security fully compatible with exchange server etc. Does someone have a URL to a Procedure for doing this?

    You cannot run Smart Security on servers but the license allows you to download EAV 3.0 (and NOD32 2.7 as well) under the same license so just use EAV on your servers.

    I you have XMON 2.7 on the Exchange servers (the one scanning inside Exchange) you will have to stick with that version for a while on the Exchange servers as it haven't been upgraded to the 3.0 platform yet.

    If you just have plain NOD32 2.7 on your Exchange servers you can run EAV 3.0 on them as long as you remember to exclude the files Microsoft recommends from being scanned (just as you must on NOD32 2.7):

    • %ProgramFiles%\Exchsrvr\MDBData\
    • %ProgramFiles%\Exchsrvr\Mtadata\
    • %ProgramFiles%\Exchsrvr\%SERVERNAME%.log
    • %ProgramFiles%\Exchsrvr\Mailroot
    • %ProgramFiles%\Exchsrvr\Srsdata
    • %SystemRoot%\System32\Inetsrv
    • %ProgramFiles%\Exchsrvr\IMCData

    The files may be located elsewhere on your servers.

    As well as those for Exchange Server...there are exclusions for the Server OS itself..especially if it's a DC...
    Granted the below link is for SBS...but you can easily separate what's for Exchange, a DC, and regular server with other infrastructure duties.

    From this site...

    Exchange Server Database = C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\Mdbdata (see note above)
    Exchange MTA files = C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\Mtadata
    Exchange Message tracking log files = C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\server_name.log
    Exchange SMTP Mailroot = C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\Mailroot
    Exchange working files = C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\Mdbdata
    Site Replication Service (not normally used in SBS but should be excluded anyway) = C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\srsdata
    C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\Conndata

    IIS related Exclusions
    IIS System Files = C:\WINDOWS\system32\inetsrv
    IIS Compression Folder = C:\WINDOWS\IIS Temporary Compressed Files

    Domain Controller related exclusions
    Active Directory database files = C:\WINDOWS\NTDS
    NTFRS Database Files = C:\WINDOWS\ntfrs

    Windows SharePoint Services
    Temporary SharePoint space = C:\windows\temp\Frontpagetempdir

    Additional Exclusions
    Removable Storage Database (used by SBS Backup) = C:\Windows\System32\ntmsdata
    SBS POP3 connector Failed Mail = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Windows Small Business Server\Networking\POP3\Failed Mail
    SBS POP3 connector Incoming Mail = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Windows Small Business Server\Networking\POP3\Incoming Mail
    Windows Update Store = C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore
    DHCP Database Store = C:\WINDOWS\system32\dhcp
    WINS Database Store = C:\WINDOWS\system32\wins

    Desktop Folder Exclusions
    These folders need to be excluded in the desktops and notebooks clients.

    Windows Update Store = C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore
