Sage, SBS 2K3 and AVAST

Anyone supporting the above combination will know that Sage can run like a dog in this situation. Here’s a tip I came across in the recent edition of the Avosec Partner newsletter.

At the following registry location on the server

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\

Services\LanmanServer\Parameters

(NB all of the above should be on one line)

Key EnableOplocks – value should be set to True (1)

Installation of AVAST server sets it to False

“Another thing to increase workstation to server communication especially when accessing a database is to add the following exclusion to the Standard Shield [\\*] adding the \\* turns off network drive scanning on both the client and server and stops both workstation and server scanning the files when accessed. This doesn’t effect protection at all”
