Does Symantec endpoint protection 12.1... support Microsoft Hyper-V server and host ? I mean Is it possible to install Symantec Endpoint protection on both Hyper-V server and two hosts ( one host is windows 2008 running MS SQL and another windows 2008 running Oracle ). Which exception should I do on SEP if I install SEP on those server ?

Hi,

Compatibility of Symantec Endpoint Protection with Microsoft Hyper-V:

http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH106269

Symantec does support and recommend protecting individual Virtual Machine endpoints running on Hyper-V Server with an appropriate Symantec protection product. For more information on SEP in virtualized environments, see Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1 - Virtualization Best Practices.

Yes. You can install SEP clients on both Hyper-V server and host as well. Only restriction here is that you cannot install SEPM Manager on Hyper-V Server.

 

Which exception should I do on SEP if I install SEP on those server ?

Regarding the exceptions please check following threads:
