I have a server that is both a file server and an exchange server.
I'd like to know if I can have both file server anti-virus and exchange server anti-virus on it together and whether it is advantageous to do this.

You can, although you have to make sure that you exclude the Exchange directories from being scanned.

Generally, I have found that this is more painful than anything else, and do not do it personally.  There should be no reason for an Exchange server to get a virus, as users do not use it directly, and you should not be using it for browsing either.
