I know the general recommendation is to not use any AV software on the
CVSNT server machine at all but OTOH we've been using Innoculate IT
without problems all along. We are however planning to upgrade/switch
to a different scanner for various CVS-unrelated reasons, possibly CA
eTrust (i.e. InnoculateIT's official successor) or TrendMicro
ServerProtect. We already have experience with both products as we've
installed them at several of our customers and in the case of eTrust
it's already what we're using on our client machines.

My question:
Does anybody have experience with these scanners in combination with
CVSNT servers/repositories? What AV products are you using? What have
you used in the past and found to be problematic? What additional steps
were necessary to make it work with CVSNT (e.g. excluding repository
folders and temp dirs from on-access scanning) if any?

I think the results of this survey might make a nice starting point for
a Wiki page...

"Which AV products work well with CVSNT, which don't and what has to be
done to make them?"
