I'm not sure whether to install the Antivirus server on our Windows SBS server or our application1 server.  The application1 server only has 20 client licences and we have 60 client machines that will have the antivirus installed.  We have 60 licenses for Windows 2008 SBS.

Im not sure how Microsoft work their server licenses, your help is appreciated.

My thinking is that the AntiVirus server wont be talking to all machine at once.  

your advice is more than welcome.

you can have a client-server AV which will be installed on the SBS and automatically pushed by GP to the end machines. Producets like sophos, GFI, Trend Micro, symantec... they are all sold seat based.
