Thanks Ted,

If I understand, I just need to install the 10.1 and the reporting server in
one of my primary and that is it?

Is there any eval version of it? I will like to test it on my lab first.
BTW, is the 10.1 affected by the recent Symantec products vulnerability?

I am running Reporting server without any problem on version 10, and 9
servers. The agent installs and reports back to the reporting server. You
may need a special group with 10.1 for the reporting server only, but the
reporting will work with the lower version AV servers ( agent will not
install on NT systems)

Sekure and all,

Thanks but we don't have version 10.1 and unfortunately, I have to find a
way to report with the versions we have. I may suggest to upgrade but that
will not be possible now - IT Ops folks and other IS Managers will be
difficult to convince - given the heavy IT Governance and change process we
have in place.

We currently have version 8 in few sites, version 9 and 10 in the majority
of the sites.

Paul, your pointers are more than welcome!!!

Symantec Corp AV 10.1 has a reporting server module, which provides
pretty pictures for lots of these metrics.
