How many servers do you have?  I would do it manually.

I have 4 servers, i was asking about using a (log script) because i am afraid after manually uninstalling Symantec 10.0 some of the files will stay there and i would not be able to install the new version.

Thanks

Don't waste time with a script.  With corporate version of Symantec products, the hideous uninstall problems of their consumer products do not happen.  In any event, if there were to be a problem with an uninstall, Symantec's manual uninstalls (imho) can't be done completely by script.  Do them manually.

Shell i use CleanWipe.exe tool after uninstalling Symantec old version to make sure its uninstalled totally so then i install the new version?

Are the steps the same in uninstalling Symantec in server as in client?

Just use Add/Remove programs.  I've uninstalled 10.x and installed 11.x on quite a number of servers and workstations with no problems.  I would not use CleanWipe unless I encountered problems.

If AV is the only Symantec product installed, also uninstall LiveUpdate.

Are you just installing the regular AV?  I'm not aware of registry setups, can you point me to what you are seeing?
