I'm pushing 8.7i patch 1 w/anti spyware to machines and for now I'll keep anti spyware off the servers. I'm wondering what others have done.
I've pushed it to appx 1/3 of our servers (about 70 servers) with no issues, but have stopped since I am planning on upgrading everything to 8.7 soon.
Despite this, in the meantime any new servers are getting the AS module installed during the initial build.
Since AS rollout in March, we've had two false positives but both were concening workstations and not servers.
Its a client app.
Don't go websurfing on a server.
The only thing i think it is useful for is a Terminal Server with User Profiles.
for standardisation, we deploy the same AV product to all systems, including servers. So they get AS, just incase, handy when your manually chasing patches/updates from a problem server, last thing you want to do is visit a site with some dodgy trojan or something (not that AS's success rate is high). Its a risk, but with the the right server policy for telling it what not to scan, your servers will be fine, mine have for several years, but then again, i'm only running 12 of them with 2003/2000 Server.
We have AS deployed to over 1000 servers from Windows 2000-Windows 2008 including DC's. No issues on our end.
I deploy Antispyware on all workstations, but not on server, didn't see the need for it, so thought no point to install something I didn't think was actually needed.
We have ASE on our servers, as the Windows profiles are roaming and are stored on those servers, as are the cookies when they log off from their local machines.
