KB: Exclude mounted volumes from the weekly on-demand scan in System Center 2012 Endpoint Protection for Mac

KB73343332When System Center 2012 Endpoint Protection (SCEP 2012) for Mac runs a scheduled weekly scan, it may unexpectedly scan all network mounted drives such as Server Message Block (SMB) share folders and Andrew File System (AFS) share folders. This may cause System Center 2012 to scan the files on hundreds of servers. This issue occurs because on Mac computers, all drives are mounted to the "/Volumes" path. The root path is mounted to the "/" path and has a symbolic link under the "/Volumes" path. Therefore, System Center 2012 Endpoint Protection for Mac cannot include or exclude drives from scanning.

For all the details and a workaround please see the following:
