MSPA does not, by default, check for BD.
- Under Policy Management -> MSPAssist Monitoring\Global Default Policies\"CORE Global Policy" - Removed the Agent Procedure "AV Master SCRIPT". (NOTE: Before removing, make note of the Schedule.) Save and Apply.
- Created a View called "MSPAssist - STSI - Managed Machines Not Running Bitdefender".
In this View I used the Applications setting set to "Missing application epag.exe". This filters out anything that is running BD. Since BD isn't checked in the MSPA logic, there's no reason to run the AV Master SCRIPT against anything that has BD installed.
- In the MSPAssist Monitoring\Global Default Policies container, I created a new policy called "CORE Global Policy - AV Checks", assigned the newly created View and added in the Agent Procedure "AV Master SCRIPT".
Making sure to use the same schedule as before.
- I then applied the new policy and once the changes have all processed, I stopped getting the bogus Server - Unknown AV messages.
I now only get those alerts if the "epag.exe" file is missing, AND there is no other AV installed.
