We currently use Symantec Corp AntiVirus V11 on our SBS 2003 network. No problems with it that rate a mention. Now we've been offered an upgrade to Endpoint Protection. I downloaded the product (huge downloads BTW) but am reluctant to install until I know more about it's pros and cons. Anyone out there have experience with the upgrade on a SBS 2003 network? Recommendations? We are a 20 user network with heavy use of Sharepoint and Exchange.

I have a similar setup and installed the upgrade without any problems at all.  I was actually surprised how well it went.

I would recommend doing it off hours and make sure you have backups etc....  Same as any other upgrade.

I have a buddy that is testing the upgrade on his system and reporting back to me on how it goes. I'll wait for those results before upgrading myself
