VirusScan 8.8 - Exclusions - Full On-Demand Scan - Servers

Sorry if this has been covered a million times. I would like opinions and suggestions on a comprehensive list of exclusions for On-Demand, full scans on Windows servers.

Yes, I know every environment is different.

I have read the KB below and many other from both McAfee and other software vendors and incorporated them into the exclusions in the On-Access polices.

Does anyone have a baseline or comprehensive list of file types that should be excluded in full On-Demand scans being performed on Windows servers?

My understanding:

- On-Demand scans should cover folders & files that have been excluded in the On-Access policies.

- On-Demand scans should exclude file types such as MS SQL, Oracle and Exchange DBs.
