Hi,

I am wondering what the downsides are of running AVG business edition on a sbs 2003. (exchange/file server/AD/mysql)
I know there are dedicated software packages for that, but was wondering if just installing the file scanning service (not link scanner /shield etc) would be advisable?
(of course in an ideal world I would install the file and email server edition, but due to budget reasons this is not desirable.)

We have been doing it for years on numerous servers without issue. We support several dozen SBS 2003 and 2008 locations.

Thanks! Just to be clear... I'm talking about the client version you normally install on workstations.
Are there any specific settings I Have to bear in mind?

No. I install the same on all machines. I can tell no difference between versions for Server and PC. They take the same key and behave the same way. You can install one copy or push out with the admin tool.
