SBS 2011 Console Security Status is "Not Available"

SBS 2011 Standard, SP1
SBS Console > Network tab > Computers > Server
Security Status column shows "Not Available".  I am using Symantec Endpoint Protection. Perhaps Symantec disables the native Windows reporting of security status. But Windows reports the secuity status of the workstations as "OK", and they also run Symantec Endpoint Protection.

The other discussions I found here relate to SBS 2008, and they do not point to a clear resolution (at least not that I could find).

Thank you,

    This is normal. Servers have no security center. So don't worry. This will only be shown at clients.

    That is comforting, I suppose. If only Microsoft had more sensible status messages! Thank you for the explanation.
