I am currently running 10.1 on my Win2003 server, with about a dozen clients
Now I have a couple employees running Vista. As long as I have held out, even I am thinking about taking the plunge!
I thought it would be no sweat to install 10.1 on these Vista machines, and then i ran into the vicious cycle that i know others have been in and wasted SO much time...You try to install, and it tells you that 10.1 is incompatible with Vista, and then Vista tells you (incessantly, over and over) about NDIS and driver incompatibility.
And after following links to "fix this problem" - come to find out the only solution is to get Endpoint.
Now, I have seen elsewhere here on EE that 10.2.2 works with Vista, but I cannot go that route i don't think because (not on my watch) someone prior to me let the support expire.
And so, technically it would be cheaper, sort of, to buy Endpoint, with 5 or 10 seats, than reinstate my support for 10.1.
So here is my question. If I have to buy Endpoint to protect Vista, but right now I would only need a couple seats - and so I don't want to buy enough seats to get rid of my 10.1...
Can I have Endpoint on one server managing clients x, y, z and keep 10.1 running on another server running a,b,c,d etc?
Yes, this the best solution. But you need to keep the 10.1 server up and running. Because endpoint server doesn't support legacy clients management and virus definitions update (except logging, it's supported).
