Don't let your AntiVirus software ruin DFS Replication

Windows Server 2008 has some really neat features to help make your users (and your) life easier. One of them is Distributed File System. There is a sure fire way to ruin this feature, having an incompatible antivirus product.

Since a move to Windows Server 2008 and antivirus protection is a big investment in your business, neglecting compatability in your antivirus protection can cause a serious cost over run.

Below is a list of compatible antivirus products from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/815263/en-us.

There is also a hot fix availible for ForeFront client users. If your files take unexpectedly long to replicate, check out this link. 3rd party antivirus vendors may also have this issue as well.
