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



(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”
