Forefront Endpoint Protection 2010 exclusions for Windows 2008 Server

I am evaluating a standalone install of ForeFront EndPoint Protection 2010 on a Windows 2008 Standard server. So far, it works fine. I have no exclusions set. My next test is running on a server with DNS, IIS7, and SQL Express. Do I have to setup complex scan exclusions? From what I understand, this is required with some antivirus programs so that that do not interfere with Windows update, SQL server, IIS compression directory etc. I know how to set exclusions. But I was hoping that since Forefront is a Microsoft product it would play nice on a server. Is anyone running Forefront without any exclusions? Any other issues I should know about?

Forefront without exclusions will function but isn't ideal. if your using forefront in an SCCM environment policy is deployed via configmgr. forefront includes template files for many roles and services which can be deployed  via GPO

I am not using SCCM. It is a standalone install. Does the same still apply?
