This article documents antivirus exclusions that should help prevent antivirus software from interrupting Veeam Availability Orchestrator operation.


Antivirus Exclusions:

Folders on the Veeam Availability Orchestrator Server:

  • C:\Program Files\Veeam
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Veeam
  • C:\Program Files\Common Files\Veeam
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Veeam
  • VBRCatalog ( [HKLM\SOFTWARE\Veeam\Veeam Backup Catalog] CatalogPath value)
  • C:\Windows\Veeam

Due to the complex nature of antivirus software some additional exclusions may be needed.

If your antivirus has a logging or history system please review this to see actions it may have taken that may affect Veeam Availability Orchestrator operations.
