Symantec Endpoint on WHS? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Has anyone tried installing Symantec endpoint on WHS? If so how about the management console of endpoint? I'm looking at possibly switching from server 2003 to WHS but I am trying to find out the antivirus situation. Is there a good antivirus program out there that works well with WHS as a management for all clients on the network or is that to much for WHS?

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    If you have a search, there are only a few anti-virus products guaranteed to run on WHS. (Just because WHS is based on Server2003, doesn't mean all Server2003 products will operate correctly because of the specific way that WHS uses drives).

    Avast has a WHS product which is licensed with 10 Client computers and shows their details etc within the Console. However, each Client updates itself - not through the server component.

  • I run Kaspersky Anti-Virus on WHS with no issues.  They do have a central admin tool but I never looked into it.

  • I have SEP running on WHS with no issues. The management console is handy (if you need it) when you have 5-6 computers running.

    Mind you SEP does not work (ie. only the AV part) on Windows 7.
