It would be a good idea to install Bitdefender Security for File Servers then.

On a server it is generally necessary to install a Server version of an antivirus.  Trying to install the basic version probably won't work.

Most antivirus companies give away the basic version of their product to consumers, but they draw the line when it comes to servers.  Presumably a company which can afford a server and a Server version of Windows can afford to pay for an antivirus, which seems to be a reasonable presumption.
