Installing Symantec EndPoint Protection On Windows Server 2008

We have a fresh Windows Server 2008 Standard x64 server that we are installing SEP on. The server is a member server on an SBS 2003 R2 Premium domain.

When we started the SEP setup routine, we were greeted with:


The following IIS configuration is required:

  • IIS 7 installed and running.
    • ASP.NET + prerequisites are required.
    • CGI
    • IIS 6.0 Management Compatibility.

Once IIS and the required components are installed, the following two default ports need to be added to the Windows Firewall with Advanced Security:

  • Client Inbound Traffic: 8014
  • Server Management Console: 8443

From there, SEP should install with no issues.
