Norton Anti-Virus 11.0.4202.75 deployment help/policy question

On my Windows 2003 server I used to have NAV 10.2 and just upgraded to 11.0.4202.75 and need some help. If I push out to client or install by pointing to the server install package, everything installs fine, but the client install isnt locked down at all. My old install would only allow them to run a scan. current install lets them uninstall program, choose scan, choose updates, etc.

How can I lockdown what options are installed and what they have access to? I want to block uninstall and want to be able to run updates on server and push out to clients. Thoughts?

Do the new installs show a managing server?
All 3 of them provide an overview of how to configure certain components. When i first installed end point i ran into some trouble because i didnt get a chance to get familiar with sep after you browse through all the menus everything is pretty much like ssc.

I will check the links you provided. to answer the first question, when i do the install, it doesnt show me the server or group, but the newly installed computer does show up on the server under my group SCP.
I dont think the client will show the parent but if you look for the sylink.xml on the client and you open it with notepad you will see who the parent is for the client. you will see an entry like . <server name =" yoursepserver"

Videos helped but I am still have issues locking down the application on the client side where they cant uninstall and I need to know how to have my server running the AV software be the update server instead of each client going to the web for updates. I see the location to set this but not sure what the setting should be. it asks for host - server name? ip?
Ok here is what was extracted from the sep manager console when using the help-> search feature.

Password-protecting the client
You can increase corporate security by requiring password protection on the client computer whenever users perform certain tasks.
You can require the users to type a password when users try to do one of the following actions:
"Open the client's user interface.
"Stop the client.
"Import and export the security policy.
"Uninstall the client.
You can modify password protection settings only for the subgroups that do not inherit from a parent group.
To password-protect the client
1.In the console, click Clients.
2.Under View Clients, select the group for which you want to set up password protection.
3.On the Policies tab, under Location-independent Policies and Settings, click General Settings.
4.Click Security Settings.
5.On the Security Settings tab, choose any of the following check boxes:
"Require a password to open the client user interface
"Require a password to stop the client service
"Require a password to import or export a policy
"Require a password to uninstall the client
6.In the Password text box, type the password.
The password is limited to 15 characters or less.
7.In the Confirm password text box, type the password again.
8.Click OK.
also while you are in the help section you can search for liveupdate and you will see the article Determining how clients get content
It will show you how to accomplish what you are looking for.
