It goes without saying that any Antivirus related events on this PC will not be reported to the SCCM server.
So it will be up to the user of this PC to keep an eye on what’s going on with the system - much like you would manage an AV client on your home computer.
Easy enough to deploy it and we have to make sure all servers are protected in the near future for NIST compliance.
