Hello, The Question: Is there anything wrong with installing the standard NOD32 AV client program on a windows 2003 server, whether it is a small business server hosting exchange or SQL? The Background: Our email spam and spam filtering is outsourced, so we do not need the exchange scanner. However, this system IS on our network, and therefore, I wish to have a resident scanner on the system. I found a few posts on the internet in various forums all of which suggested having the scanner exclude certain files, such as the exchange mailbox database (the specific post about this said that if an email with a virus is received, it is stored in the mailbox and if the scanner scans this, it may delete or quarantine the entire store! It sounds logical, however, I'm not familiar with exactly how scanners work). Since a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, I am looking to find out whether I can just leave the scanner default, or whether I need to customize it somewhat. Thank you for your time.
