Using Comodo Free Antivirus on SBS 2008

So here's the deal. I just upgraded to a SBS 2008 domain controller from Windows 2000 server. Clients are is currently using an older version of Symantec Antivirus supporting server/ client model that continues to update definitions and push them out to the clients. To clear up any confusion the server piece of this Antivirus is running on a Windows Server 2003 box. In addition the SBS 2008 box is getting it's exchange e-mail filtered through a 3rd party so I don't feel we need to implement an antivirus solution for Exchange or a spam filtering solution for that matter. On a test server, I successfully installed Comodo free antivirus, I thought I'd give this a shot because it is free for both commercial and personal use. My question is, can I make this work as far as exclusions go? Has anyone had experience doing this and / or can you lead me to a list of exclusions that I should list for this particular piece of AV software with this OS? Thanks!

I've installed Comodo on Server 2008 std. edition and it worked just fine.   Resource utilization was very very low.  Have had it deployed for about a year and have had no issues.

That's good to hear. Did you have to apply any exclusions?

Nothing as of yet.  This server is both a Domain Controller and an application server.  I have had very very little configuration or tweaks to do to set it up and keep it running.
