imageHere’s a KB we just published that talks about the A/V exclusions you’ll want to configure in a System Center Service Manager environment:

=====

Summary

Antivirus exclusions need to be properly configured in a System Center Service Manager 2010 (SCSM 2010) or System Center 2012 Service Manager (SCSM 2012) environment in order to avoid potential performance issues due to A/V scanning operations. To configure the exclusions for your Service Manager environment, you will need to configure the exclusions documented below.

More Information

For Service Manager and Service Manager Data Warehouse management servers, configure exclusions for the following process executables/folders:
