You have to deploy/prepare endpoint on/per ESXi Host.

This is what the deployment guide says:
After you prepare the ESX host for vShield Endpoint installation, install vShield Endpoint in these stages:
1. Deploy and configure a security virtual machine (SVM) to each ESX host according to the instructions
from the anti-virus solution provider.
2. Install the latest version of VMware Tools released for the version of ESX that you have on all virtual
machines to be protected.

Of course you have to deploy vShield manager before you do all this.

I guess my question was more directed at vShield Manager.  Does one vShield Manager install serve just the cluster it is installed to?  For example, I have five clusters connected to one vCenter server, will I need five installations of vShield Manager?

Thanks for the info on vShield Endpoint, that is the direction I am going.

Hey

Yes it should be installed as a virtualappliance on any ESX host in your vCenter Server environment

Thanks

No you will not need one per cluster. You just need one vShield manager. And you will integrate vCenter with it. So it will cover all the clusters in that vCenter.
