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.

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.
