I have inherited a SBS Server that is utilising Symantec Anti VIrus V10...

Sorry for the simple question -- but how do I install the antivirus on a new client?

I have had a look thru the help files on the server when in the Symantec Admin Client - but cannot find anything on installing on the client?  ( It says types of installs on client -- ie. managed v unmanaged -- but not how to do it ).  Perhaps I am looking in the wrong area?

Thank you for your help.

Look on the Start menu to see if Symantec System Center Console is installed. If so, open it and pull down the Tools menu. Select ClientRemote Install. Click Next, Click Next again to accept the Default location of the install files. On the Select Computers prompt, expand Microsoft windows network and your domain or workgroup. From the list, select the computer(s) you want to push the install to, then select your server on the right side. The Add button will become available and you can now click it to make the selected client computer(s) ready to install from the server you selected. Click Finish and away you go. This will push the install to the client and make it a managed client. You can then manage them using the Symantec System Center Console.
