What are the required/recommended Antivirus exceptions for BPC ????

I need to provide and implement a definitive list of required Antivirus exceptions for BPC (both Web and SQL servers). We currently run v5.1 but I would also like to know if anything is different for v7, although I don't see why it would be.

However, I only seem to have vague references to exception lists (e.g. BPC Log Files or SQL database files)

So I find myself wondering what the rest of the BPC community do in this resepct ???

If you could let me know what exceptions are generally made (or even better, if you have an actual list of recommended exceptions), I would be extremely grateful.

    Do not real-time scan SAP BPC server program directories.

    Do not real-time scan SQL Server and Analysis Services server

    program directories.

    Do not real-time scan the SQL Server and Analysis Services data


    Do not real-time scan log files, temp folders and backup


    Monitoring of network traffic should be specific to file type where


    Ensure the SAP BPC XLA and DLL files are not scanned real-time

    (these files are located in the BPC program files directory)

    The OutlookSoft folder within the My Documents folder that stores

    application and personal files can be scanned but is likely to

    impact the performance of dimension downloads and the retrieval

    of documents from these directories (wizards, process selector

    menus, etc).
