Upgrading Symantec Antivirus Corporate Edition 8.0 to Symantec Endpoint Protection 11

sjvtech asked
Last Modified: 2013-12-09
I currently have symantec antivirus corporate edition 8.0 on my network

There is 1 server that distribute virus definitions to all of the workstations across the network (about 200 including other servers).

We have never upgraded this setup.

Now because of new OS's we've been "forced" to buy the latest symantec product which is Endpoint Protection 11.

What I would like to do is setup a new server separate from the existing Symantec Antivirus Server, and start basically from scratch.

What I want to know is, can I push out the clients to the workstations running SAV 8.0 and will those clients be upgraded (uninstalling the old and installing the new.)

If I could have some help on how to do this in the most effective manner (general instructions on what to do or what to avoid) that would be great.
