SEE Management Server
The SEE Management Server can be installed on either a physical machine or a VMware ESXi 3.5 virtual machine.

SQL Server Instance
The SQL Server instance hosting the SEE database can reside on a database server or on the SEE Management
Server. If located on a database server, the database server does not need to belong to an Active Directory domain.
For optimal performance, Symantec recommends storing the data file and log files on separate physical disks. The
disk storing the log files must be formatted with the NTFS file system.

The SEE database can reside on either a physical machine or a VMware ESXi 3.5 virtual machine.

Client Computers

BIOS
The system BIOS must support extended INT 13h. SCSI devices that do not use INT 13h to access the hard disk are not supported.
Changes to the NUMLOCK BIOS settings are not supported.

File System
The NTFS and FAT32 formats are supported.

Compatibility Notes
  • SEE Full Disk relies on the Master Boot Record (MBR). System restore tools that replace the MBR, such as IBM Rescue and Recover, are not compatible with SEE Full Disk and can cause serious problems if used.
  • SEE Full Disk relies on its client database files and cannot protect them before Windows has loaded. Boottime defragmentation programs will scramble the client database files and prevent the computer from booting.

Ensure that the hard drives of the Client Computers are not encrypted with any other full disk encryption software before deploying SEE Full Disk. SEE Full Disk will not install on Trusted Computing Group (TCG) Opal-compliant, self-encrypting drives.
Fast user switching is not supported.

Section 508
SEE Full Disk provides Section 508–compliant text-to-speech capability for its Windows user interface components when used with JAWS version 9.0.2152 or later.

Software Requirements
Once SEE Full Disk has been installed, no changes to the partition table are supported. Before repartitioning, reformatting, or resizing any partitions on the Client Computer, you must first uninstall SEE Full Disk.
Changes to the drive letters of encrypted disks and partitions are not supported.
Encrypted disks must be decrypted before they can be removed from one machine and inserted into another machine. Swapping of encrypted disks is not supported.
RAID configurations are not supported. Dual-boot and multi-boot systems are not supported.
SEE Full Disk must be uninstalled before an upgrade to the operating system occurs. Moving from one Edition to another is considered an upgrade of the operating system. The application of a service pack is not considered an upgrade of the operating system.
