Running Antivirus Software on Protected Computers
Updated: January 15, 2013
Applies To: System Center 2012 - Data Protection Manager, System Center 2012 SP1 - Data Protection Manager
To prevent data corruption of replicas and shadow copies, configure the antivirus software to delete infected files rather than automatically cleaning or quarantining them. Automatic cleaning and quarantining can result in data corruption because these processes cause the antivirus software to modify files, making changes that System Center 2012 – Data Protection Manager (DPM) cannot detect. For information about configuring your antivirus software to delete infected files, see the documentation for your antivirus software.
For information about configuring firewalls on computers when installing protection agents, see Installing Protection Agents.
