An Endpoint Protection Cloud (SEPC) security policy is not behaving as expected after applying a new folder exclusion to the policy.
Policy application error
Error applying policy.
SEPC is still detecting and removing files in locations with an exclusion set.
Action: Apply Management Policy
Status: Partially Applied
Failed Features: exclusions (Error code: 0x80040500)
There is an improperly formatted exclusion rule written in the security policy.
This causes SEPC does not know how to apply the improperly formatted policy to the agent, so all exclusion rules remain unapplied.
Double check the formatting of any file or folder exclusion rules setup in the security policy.
NOTE: UNC paths are unsupported.
A full list of syntax rules can be found within the article Environment variable syntax for folder scan exclusions
