Recommended Components for Servers

This Article Applies to:

  • AVG Business Antivirus


A business environment has different needs than those of consumers. Therefore, certain components are not recommended for use in such a network even though they may be included in your AVG Business subscription.

The recommendations for the various types of servers vary, but in general you should allow only a few components to be active to avoid interfering with server processes. Web Shield and Email Shield should be excluded from the installation.

For optimal performance, the following types of servers should only have the suggested components enabled:

  • File Server : File Shield
  • Application Server: File Shield
  • DNS Server: File Shield
  • Email Server: Exchange component, File Shield
  • Web Server: File Shield
  • Terminal Server: File Shield
  • SharePoint: SharePoint component, File Shield

If the components not listed above are not removed, you may encounter instability in the server environment or errors. If they are already installed, you can removed them via the Add/modify components option in the Menu > Settings > General > Troubleshooting section of the client UI.
