Windows Defender default exclusions in Windows Server 2016

If you enable antivirus on a server then you always have to be sure to configure appropriate exclusions, so that antivirus does not affect server performance.
In Windows Server 2016 Windows Defender has a lot of default exclusions configured. So for example, on domain controller Windows Defender will not scan Active Directory database files:
  • %windir%\Ntds\ntds.dit
  • %windir%\Ntds\ntds.pat
