You will need a dedicated server either physical or vm environment.  Any installations will be lost once SPC 2.1 iso is installed. 

Please read the Symantec™ Protection Center 2.1 documentation for specific requirements

SPC 2.1 User guide

SPC 2.1 Release Notes

Thanks In Advance

The Symantec Protection Center ISO (Disc Image) can be downloaded from the Fileconnect site with other supported products you have purchased.  See here.


Once the ISO has been downloaded this can be used to installed to install the product on your dedicated server.  You will also need to have the correct version of windows as well.  You will need Windows Server 2008 R2 (x64) - DVD (English) non SP1 ISO.  See Here.


You will need both of the above to complete the installation successfully.  Also as noted before please look at the user guides associated with the Protection Center ISO for hardware requirements.  See below for your current version documentation.
