If you just purchased it from McAfee refunds are available.   None of the consumer products are compatible with server editions.   Some Enterprise ones are but you would have to ask there, also note Enterprise involves bulk licensing.

I would do an online search if I were you.  But if you wish to ask the Enterprise people post a new discussion here:

It's been quite a while since I used an Enterprise product so best to ask them.
