--> There should not be any problem.If Microsoft Exchange servers are installed on a computer with Symantec Endpoint Protection client, the client software automatically detects the presence of Exchange. When the client software detects a Microsoft Exchange server, it creates the appropriate file and folder exclusions for File System Auto-Protect and all other scans.

Hi Moh Johan Rajabi,

Just to confirm what is written above: I have a SEP 12.1 RU2 client on my Ex2010 server, along with SMSMSE 7.0.1.  They work well together.  &: )

All the best,

Mick

With thanks and best regards,

Hello,

I agree. Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1 and Symantec Mail Security for Exchange works without any issue when installed on the same server.

In previous versions of Symantec Endpoint Protection and Symantec AntiVirus, the virus definitions were shared between the virus protection client and other Symantec products that used virus definitions. In Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1, this is no longer true.

SMSMSE does not share definitions with SAV-CE/SEP in the following circumstances: 

  • Any version of SMSMSE with SEP 12
  • SMSMSE 6.0.9 and later installed to a 64 bit system

With the introduction of Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) version 12.1, antivirus definitions will no longer be shareable with other products. SEP will assume full control of its definition sets in order to optimize performance and security. 

Providing definitions independently allows Symantec to:

  • Build a lighter and faster LiveUpdate Engine (LUE), targeted for the SEP release only. This greatly improves the experience for all endpoints, including desktops and servers.
  • Improve defense in depth by optimizing the security needs of each product, including the usage of Certified Definitions for SEP and Rapid Release Definitions for SMS
  • Adapt to Virtualization efficiency needs where definitions on every machine may be eliminated altogether.
  • Eliminate the risk of sharing definitions, including definition incompatibility and resource conflicts that could lead to downtime.
