That will get the basics. However each Primary AV server (and ideally)
each AV server needs to have the reporting AGENTS install and configured to
report to the Reporting server. To configure the agents you need the 10.1
Symantec Center Console.

If you have a big infrastructure you should consider a separate SQL back
end server.

Thanks Ted,

If I understand, I just need to install the 10.1 and the reporting server
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.
