Antivirus directory exclusions for SAM

Updated: 3-9-2017

To run SolarWinds products you may need to exclude certain directories and ports from your antivirus software and add service accounts. You can also review antivirus exclusions for all Orion products in this article.

Directories

Ensure that SAM has access to all required files by excluding the following directories from antivirus protection.

  • Do not exclude executable files.
  • SolarWinds assumes that C:\ is the default install volume.

  • C:\Inetpub\SolarWinds\
  • C:\ProgramData\SolarWinds\
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\SolarWinds\
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\
