    Hello all,

    I am among the countless other sysadmins who had to dump v4 and go back to v3. Can anyone tell me when/if v4 will ever work correctly for servers? I have Windows Server 2003 SP2 and found v4 to be horrible. Crashed my domain server endlessly and without mercy. I am fearful to even ask this question. v3 at least works, and for this I guess I should be grateful. But I did purchase v4 with the understanding that it *would* work with servers. Thank you for your time and assistance.

    Have you checked into the setup exclusions Microsoft suggests for domain controllers?

    Helped me get v3 running like a top on Domain Controllers (including SBS).

    Wouldn't it be beautiful to see ESET add an option that with one click, applies all of the MS recommended exclusions? After all, many of them lookup registry keys, and determine a path from there. And you'd still have the ability to remove or disable individual pieces of it, if you wanted, but by default it would know if the server's a DC, Exchange, SQL, etc. and provide you the option to enable default/recommended exclusions.

    Yes yes yes. It would save considerable time in doing installs on servers...especially for those of us resellers that install NOD on servers many many times.

    Yeah that would be nice and seems able to do. After all if you install 2.7 on a server it automatically detects and disables web monitoring. Worth mentioning in the future changes thread.
