Support for Server 2012 started with RU2 and above so yes it's supported. RU3 just came out last week so I would suggest starting with that.

 

Upgrading or migrating to Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1.3 (RU3)

Hello,

Yes, Windows Storage Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 cluster server both are supported from SEP 12.1 RU2 onwards.

I believe the above article also applies to Windows Server 2012 cluster server. (Let me confirm this)

Just on a kind note: Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1 RU3 has released and check this BLOG's:

Oh, that's a good question.  While clustering and Win2012 are supported individually, I'd be curious to see if the combination is supported, especially given the plethora of changes to clustering introduced in Win2012.

As a Symantec employee, maybe you could take Mithun's comments as proof of support?

I'd personally suggest esclating this question via Symantec support or an account manager to get one of the product management chaps to weigh in.

Hi,

Thanks for posting your query in Symantec community.

I would be glad to answer your question.

The KB you mentioned is probably not updated yet. I will try to check with the teams how we can add Server 2012 into that.

I believe Server 2012 clustering is supported however I would suggest to test it prior to implementation.

Hello,

Upon checking with the concerned team, we understand that All flavours of Windows Server 2012 are supported from SEP 12.1 RU2 onwards.

System Requirements for Symantec Endpoint Protection, Enterprise and Small Business Editions, and Network Access Control 12.1.2 and 12.1.3

http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH195325

However, we would come out with a specific Article for  Windows Server 2012 Cluster Server.

Hope that helps!!
