Running Antivirus Software on SharePoint Servers

Updated: April 21, 2010

Applies To: System Center Data Protection Manager 2010

To prevent data corruption of replicas and recovery points, 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 DPM cannot detect. For instructions on configuring your antivirus software to delete infected files, see the documentation for your antivirus software.
