Hi Venu,

First check this
http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/w32.netsky.ac@mm
.html and remove NetSky manually from your exchange (find and delete its
exe file and remove its registry keys, also you may run NetSky removal
tool with EXCLUDE switch to skip M drive, Databases, inetsrv and
Symantec folder). If netsky is already installed it means you don't have
up-to-date security patches (go to www.windowsupdates.com and install
critical updates on exchange). Then reinstall AV client in unmanaged
mode and go to Exclude Selected Files and Folders in Configure File
System realtime protection on your AV client, and exclude Exchsrv (are
your DBs in default location, if not then also exclude the folder you
use for storing DBs and logs), inetsrv (in winnt>system32), M drive and
Symantec folder in Program files, for more info go to
http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/ent-gate.nsf/eb4f48490d6380ea88256d
1e0000dafc/a4386b11e157913988256bd0007e4b09?OpenDocument&src=bar_sch_nam
.
 Schedule LiveUpdate. Run live update, and as you mentioned managed
client, find cegetter script on
http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/ent-security.nsf/docid/200209181651
0548?Open&src=bar_sch_nam&docid=2000010708230148&nsf=ent-security.nsf&vi
ew=552ba2f7636bedf088256818006f78bf&dtype=&prod=&ver=&osv=&osv_lvl= ,
edit cegetter.bat it looks like

ftp -s:cescript.txt
call "C:\navup8.exe" /y
move "C:\WINNT\*.xdb" "C:\Program Files\SAV"
del /q "C:\navup8.exe"

 and add a line copy /y " C:\WINNT\*.xdb "
"\\YourExchangeServerName\C$\Documents and Settings\All
Users\Application Data\Symantec\Norton AntiVirus Corporate Edition\7.5"
between CALL and MOVE lines, so exchange can receive daily updates from
your server but not configuration changes. 
Schedule Intelligent Updater on Symantec server, so it can update all
clients on the net on daily basis, and apply critical patches on your
clients (use SUS) as netsky most probably arrived on exchange through
your network from another client.

Please help on below 2 serious issues and help me to solve:-

   1) If I have to install a unmanaged av client then is there any harm
for the previous quarentined files or any measures to be taken care.

   2) Can I run a batch file for unmapping M Drive so that my AV will
skip M:drive and will logs generating will get minimised?.

It is because your AV software is configuring the Exchange logs and db's
fix that problem first and then backup.
