Production win2003 web servers and Symantec Endpoint client install- best practice

Hi,

I have 5 production web and sql servers (windows 2003 / mssql 2005) that I want to upgrade the AV from Symantec 10.1 to Endpoint 11.0.5. I am concerned about auto protect settings, etc interfering with web / sql server in general. i will be contacting software vendors that designed .net 2.0 apps running on system as well, but was curious if this is a standard best practice to install endpoint on web servers / sql server. v10.1 just has AV, but endpoint has network threat protection, spyware protection etc. Thanks for any input.

Also you might want to install your the antivirus first and leave everything else off this will help you isolate perfomace issues. Personally i only have the av running on my windows servers. all my other computers have all the features turned on.
