This Knowledgebase article explains the protection offered by this particular AM(X).
There is a sister article ( Knowledgebase article #875 - 'McAfee GroupShield for Lotus Domino – Application Module eXtension – Versions') that lists all the versions of the AM(X) that we have produced so far and the versions of related supported software; there are links from that sister article to (usually brief) articles that explain the unique features of each version.
Please take care to distinguish between McAfee GroupShield for Lotus Domino (this AMX) and McAfee GroupShield for Exchange (see Knowledgebase article #657 - 'McAfee GroupShield for Exchange – Application Module eXtension – Feature List').
McAfee GroupShield for Lotus Domino is an anti-virus solution for the Lotus Domino mail server. The AM(X) protects all the McAfee services, registry and the configuration information. The AM(X) only operates with Outbreak Manager installed.
This is a list of all services protected by this AM(X). Please note that where an AM(X) supports multiple vendor versions, some services may not be present in a particular version.
- McAfee Groushield
- Network Associates Log Service
- Outbreak Manager
All the services are monitored, but will continue to run on both the active and passive servers. The start up type for each service will remain as automatic.
This is a description of the protected data set; exact filters will be determined by the configuration of the application when the AM(X) is installed.
- All registry data
- All configuration information.
Please consult the product’s ReadMe.txt file for installation instructions.
Automatic Filter Discovery
The AM(X) does not provide a filter discovery component. The AMX will need to be reinstalled according to Knowledgebase article #462 - 'How to upgrade or reinstall an Application Module to protect previously unprotected features' if the application is reconfigured in such a way that new locations are specified for files that are currently protected.
Unprotected Components or Features
DAT Files are not replicated because of the potential presence of McAfee(R) VirusScan(R) Enterprise (File Level Anti Virus product). A management IP on the passive server will be required to enable these updates to take place.
