Sophos anti-virus - not so good on clusters

Hi,
Sophos sent me a white paper on how to cluster the sweep service on a Windows 2000 cluster.
I had a read and then phoned back with the question :
So how does it scan the passive node C: drive ?
Answer: Oh, we never thought of that.
Sophos it seems is not really cluster aware.
I can of course schedule a fail over but that is not ideal.
If I run it un-clustered to scan local drives, it takes out the cluster.
Next step to try is to exclude some cluster specific directories.
Anyone have any experience, or else recommend a good ant-virus product ?

thanx
