Typically Antivirus vendors have separate clients for Exchange so you check that with Vipre support.  Also for the DC and Proxy you should find out from support which is any directories needs to be exluded, for the DC's you can find the info on Microsoft.com.

Yes, it is safe for all three as long as you follow best practice.  Make sure you have the proper exclusions set for each technology type, and make sure you use an Enterprise level AV solution for them (especially Exchange).
