Issue/Introduction

Certain changes need to be made in order to configure the SWS (Streaming) agent and the SWV (Virtualization) agent for optimal use with Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) 12.x. 

 

Resolution

 
For the SWS Agent
With the SWS Agent configuration, the process name is all that is required (no path needed).
 
For SEP 12.0 and older, the pre-defined NO_ACCESS_PROCESSES list (found in AppstreamCfg.txt) is sufficient.
 
For SEP 12.1 and higher, ccSvcHst.exe must be manually added to the NO_ACCESS_PROCESSES list.
 
 
For the SWV Agent
For SEP 12.0 and older, the pre-define ProgramIgnoreList (located under HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\FSLX\Parameters\FSL). If SEP is installed to a non-default location, the path in the ProgramIgnoreList needs to be changed accordingly.
 
Beginning with SEP 12.1, the ProgramIgnoreList must include a path of the following form:
 
c:\Program Files\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection\12.1.671.4972.105\Bin\ccSvcHst.exe
 
Once again, if SEP is installed to a non-default location, the ProgramIgnoreList will need to be changed accordingly.
 
Also, since the program path now contains a build number that will change with each release (including hotfix, RU, MP, etc.), the ProgramIgnoreList must currently be updated each time SEP is updated.
