Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

If we install Forefront Client Security on a Server which already has Forefront for Exchange 2010 is it smart enough to exclude all of the exchange directories/process/file extensions as suggested by this technet article http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb332342.aspx?

The configuration if it doesn't seems daunting.

You'd have to check the docs but in general, no - the generic install doesn't know what to exclude for Exchange. I generally leave it to the Exchange install. The server should be pretty well hardened already. I wouldn't double up.

This advice seems to contradict the answer on this post? serverfault.com/questions/189067/… –  beckelmw Oct 12 '10 at 16:08
    
I'd recommend his advice over mine, in general. Though I've never had a virus get through to my Exchange servers, and I don't personally prefer to run OS AV on them. –  Kara Marfia Oct 12 '10 at 20:27
