Are there any known problems using Antivirus software on a Windows
Management won't exclude the Oracle database datafiles and log files.
: yes. If the virus software has a control file or a datafile open and then oracle tries to write to it. Bang! instance shutdown, no more database -- http://www.freelists.org/webpage/oracle-l
: Turn off file and print sharing, make sure IE is set to "Work Offline" if installed, and possibly stop remote RPC (I think!), and make sure the box is behind your corporate firewall and not directly accessible from the Internet. Use a port scanner to make sure the standard Windohs security hole ports are closed. This *should* help with the majority of the Windohs viruses and worms around. Of course the best method is to have the DB on a non-Windohs machine, but I know this isn't always
