Data Migration Best Practices - Anti-Virus Exclusions

Data migration by itself can be a major project with a lot of challenges. Thus, it is best to ensure best practices are researched, studied, and implemented. 

While many anti-virus software vendors have come a long way in recognizing a data replication application by default, many may still encounter issues or interfere with data copying.

GuruSquad recommends a process exclusion policy for the following applications:

  • GSRichCopy360.exe.
  • GSRichCopy360service.exe (in case the job is running as a service).
  • GSRichCopy360EnterpriseRTAService.exe if you are running RTA service. 

Not implementing the process exclusion does not mean data replication will not work. It may function adequately, but it depends on the anti-virus software and configuration settings; performance can be degraded or blocked.

This recommendation applies to other security programs, IPS, and IDS solutions.
