SBS 2011 - Security exception for antivirus 9.0

stmarti W/ Alumni Posts: 27 Security Scout

I have an sbs 2011 (based on w2k8 R2) box with antivirus 9.0 and antivirus for exchange installed.


There is a security tab in the sbs 2011 console where the server reports security issues and status. I think this is similar for the "Action center" in win7 or vista where the os reports security issues antivirus status etc.


After I've installed the antivirus and antivirus exchange on the box the following security message is appeared in the console:


Security essentials: C:\Program Files\Windows Small Business Server\Data\SHEXtensions\FSAVMSE.xml

Applicable to: Client computers

Status: OK

Source: System.IO.FileLoadException: Could not load file or assembly 'SHInfra, Version= .... '


How can we fix this exception or rid off from the security console?


Thank you

    Thank you,


    What is the recommended fix:

    deleting the file


    waiting for a patch (if we delete the file will a future patch restore it?)

    So far the problem does not seem to be critical to make a hotfix. As workaround you can delete the file or just ignore the exception message. We will definitely address the problem in the new release.

    I leaved the file there and just renamed the xml extension to xml.bak, this fixed it.
