    Hi All - are there any problems running Nod on my SQL server?
    Will it affect the servers database performance at all?

    Thanks

    I run NOD32 at multiple networks on W2k and W2k3 servers, some of them with SQL.
    I did not experience troubles.

    But a few important things:
    - don't use IMON
    - exclude SQL database folders in AMON.

    Greetings from Holland!

    Why don't you want IMON enable? On our SQL Server, I have excluded mdf and ldf files. Also, if you run exchange, should you also disable IMON?

    Is there a link to NOD32 setup for servers such as Domain Controller, SQL and Exchange?

    Thanks,
    -John

    You don't want IMON running on server operating systems...matter of fact, during the install, NOD32 will detect that it's installing on a server operating system....and automatically disable IMON during the install process.

    Why don't you want IMON running on servers for? I am just really curious.

    You don't (want to) run IMON on a server based machine :isay:

    Running IMON may disrupt network traffic because it is designed for workstations, and may not be able to manage all (heavy) network traffic that you expect to run on a server.

    So, take this advice and don't use it!

    So I might as well turn off DMON and EMON on my servers then, right?

    I always do, they don't hurt it...they hardly take up resources..but I quit/unload them anyways.

    Server 2000 and up contain IIS...and I believe you don't want IMON running on a box that has IIS.
