Technique : Anti-virus and Symantec Enterprise Vault


I'm currently working on the implementation of an archiving solution for our Domino based emails system and our Files System (FSA). The solution is based on Symantec Enterprise Vault. (

It's a big system ($$$$$$$).For the Domino side, we had a lot of difficulties due mainly to performance. We were able to archive but we were unable to preview the document. No an ideal solution for our users! The message was "Network operation did not complete in a reasonable amount of time; please retry".

We found out that it was related to our anti-virus . It's based on Mcafee Groupshield. But from our research, we can say that it's not a vendor's problem.

Anyway, we've disabled all the Anti-virus processes from the Domino server. As we've seen , It was working great, it was very fast!!!
Came back to the config of Groupshield to find out that some settings were doing real-time scanning.

So a good recommandation for Domino is to disable any real-time tasks for the Gateway Domino server when you have an archiving system like Enterprise Vault.

For the File system side, we still have an issue with performance...still trying to find out what's happening...cause it's actually a show stopper!!
