Impact of virus scanners on the sharepoint index server

We are having virus scanners on our sharepoint index server. Will there
be any impact of the virus scanners on the indexing?

In terms of performance? Not sure. I would suggest that you ensure
that scanning takes place when nothing else (like crawling a content
source) is occurring.

If you mean the virus  scanner scanning the index, I would strongly
suggest that they not scan the indexes since there is always the
possibility that some portion of the index  will innocently look like a
virus and the scanner will attempt to fix it.

hat location are the sharepoint  index files in so that I may exclude
these from server  side scanning?

By default, under the c:\program files\sharepoint portal server\data directory.

Then it is under the bin directory in the 60 hive.
