Endpoint Protection 188.8.131.52 Auto-Exclusions are not created for Veritas Backup Exec 15
Last Updated November 17, 2016
After installing Backup Exec 15 14.2 FP3 to a machine where Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) 12.1 RU6 MP4 was previously installed, the Auto-Exclusions are not being created to exclude SEP from scanning files during a backup.
How Backup Exec works with SEP’s AutoExcl.exe: The service process of "Backup Exec Device & Media Service" is pvlsvr.exe (installed under "C:\Program Files\Symantec\Backup Exec\" by default). When this service is restarted, it launches the SEP AutoExcl.exe to configure exclusion list on the SEP Client.
