Recommendations for Sophos virus scan file/folder exclusions for Windows Server 2008

I am installing several Windows 2008 server virtual machines on Windows Hyper-V. I am using Sophos Enterprise Console and would like to know what the best practice recommendations are for file/folder exclusions when doing daily scans of Windows 2008 servers. I found a list for Exchange specific exclusions but not for servers running other various roles such as AD, Web Servers, Print Servers, etc.

Does anyone have a proven list of exclusions for these types of servers?

Thanks in advance.

I have not seen one big list with everything, your best bet is to search on either the manufactures site or technet for specific microsoft roles,

Good luck,
