Defender Policy VS Baseline Conflict: Scan network

New Contributor

On the defender policy section it has an option for "Scan Network Files" the options are Yes or NoOn the Baseline in the Defender section it has the "Scan Network Files" section as well and the options are Yes and Not Configured (which states it won't scan them if that is selected.However, This then causes a policy Conflict when rolling out the baseline to users with the Defender Policy.Has anyone found a work around on similar issues?

@emmanueldmc, when you say "baseline', is it the Security Baseline for Windows 10 and later or
Microsoft Defender for Endpoint Baseline? Thx.

@Yong Rhee  is it the Security Baseline for Windows 10 and later... the policy for Defender it configured in the section: Endpoint security | anti virus

@emmanueldmc, what is the reason for configuring the same settings using a baseline and AV policy? It will help to avoid conflicts if the settings are configured in one place. When there is a conflict, the most restrictive policy will apply. Therefore, the result might not be the one you are expecting.
