Need feedback installing Windows Defender (known as Microsoft Security Essentials) on Server 2012 R2. Have a host running 2016 Standard Server with 2 VM's. One VM is 2016 Server and the other downgraded to 2012 R2 Standard Server by Microsoft. Had a licensing issue and the best option was downgrading to save on downtime. 2nd VM is an exchange server and doesn't have Windows Defender / Msft Sec Essentials) installed.
