Does SBS2011 need a full or basic install of Symantec Endpoint

Hi All
Our client is running SBS2011. We have installed the Symantec Endpoint Manager on a different server and are remote pushing the AV clients to each machine.

We think that their SBS2011 server should have a full package AV server install and not a basic one.

He is sure that somewhere he read that we should only deploy a basic AV server package.

Can any please help with this.

Thank you

Their SBS2011 server should not need a full package you can remotely or locally by copying the installer (not the full suite ) and when deploying your management suite should have enough licenses that's all.

The SBS server should only be a SEP client if you already have a SEPM server on the LAN.

Hi All.

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you guy's.

Completely understand the deployment and about only having the client - but my specific question is -

Should the SBS2011 server have a full or basic client AV package installed?

To confirm we are running a 12.1 endpoint manager on another server and from here we can either deploy a full AV package (Including firewall control etc) or just a Basic AV package.

Furthe comments by return would be really appreciated.

I'd go basic as to not mess with anything else running on the server. Symantec and SBS together would make me very nervous.
