SCCM 2012 exclusions for VirusScan Enterprise

Hi, I'm having some issues with VSE on a Windows 2008 R2 server hosting SCCM 2012. Every morning the MCShield service spikes to between 90 and 100% CPU utilisation, which I'm guessing is due to something being missed in the folder/file type exclusion list for the server. Does anyone have a definitive list of what should be excluded on this type of server?

Re: SCCM 2012 exclusions for VirusScan Enterprise

There is a list here https://blogs.technet.com/b/systemcenterpfe/archive/2013/01/11/updated-system-center-2012-configurat...

Scroll down to the section titled "General Antivirus Exclusions and Additional Information for System Center 2012 Configuration Manager Endpoint Protection"

General Antivirus Exclusions and Additional Information for System Center 2012 Configuration Manager Endpoint Protection

Additionally per my other post showing how to import various templates for different servers, here is the general list of file/folder exclusions exported from the Endpoint Protection System Center 2012 Configuration Manager template"

%allusersprofile%\NTUser.pol
%systemroot%\system32\GroupPolicy\registry.pol
%windir%\Security\database\*.chk
%windir%\Security\database\*.edb
%windir%\Security\database\*.jrs
%windir%\Security\database\*.log
%windir%\Security\database\*.sdb
%windir%\SoftwareDistribution\Datastore\Datastore.edb
%windir%\SoftwareDistribution\Datastore\Logs\edb.chk
%windir%\SoftwareDistribution\Datastore\Logs\edb*.log
%windir%\SoftwareDistribution\Datastore\Logs\Edbres00001.jrs
%windir%\SoftwareDistribution\Datastore\Logs\Edbres00002.jrs
%windir%\SoftwareDistribution\Datastore\Logs\Res1.log
%windir%\SoftwareDistribution\Datastore\Logs\Res2.log
%windir%\SoftwareDistribution\Datastore\Logs\tmp.edb
%programfiles%\Microsoft Configuration Manager\Inboxes\*.* (shortened list for blog sake)
%programfiles(x86)%\Microsoft Configuration Manager\Inboxes\*.* (shortened list for blog sake)

These entries above were taken directly from one of the included templates in System Center 2012 Configuration Manager
