We are running ServerProtect by Trend Micro throughout our corporation, and have begun installing Server 2008. We are unable to push the software to those server. It installs, but when it gets to the point of "starting service" it fails. I know security changed quite a bit with 2008. Has anyone been able to do this, or do we have to revert to OfficeScan on these servers until they release a version that supports 2008?

I've had major trouble trying to get my AV (Grisoft's AVG) to install remotely to Server 2008 - it sort of works, but it exhibits very similar behaviour to what you say is happening with TrendMicro.

Until a version of your AV is released which supports Server 2008, you're going to have to revert back to a standard file-system AV and ensure no database files - such as Exchange or SQL Server - files on the server are included in the scan. It's not a pretty procedure, but if your AV doesn't support the new Server 2008 core and security configuration, actually getting something installed probably won't work properly (if at all).

You might want to try manually installing it using the install EXE you should be provided with. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't!
