Just want to verify... Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM) system requirements

Created: 01 Feb 2013 | 4 comments

When I first started to roll SEP, I believe the requirement was 2GB of RAM, I accidentally pushed it to a server that had 1 GB of RAM, once I restarted that server would NOT come back up and I had to have it sent to me. Now I am looking at the current specs and want to verify that this is in fact the correct requirement before I even THINK about restarting the server.

I have a Windows Server 2003 32 BIT O/S

Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM) system requirements

Physical RAM

1 GB of RAM for 32-bit operating systems, 2 GB of RAM for 64-bit operating systems, or higher if required by the operating system.

I just want other pairs of eyes to verify that what I am reading is correct, I really do not want another server crash.

I have installed BASIC Protection for Servers and it is the latest version of the SEP Client 12.1.2015.2015

...please note though that in reality more RAM may be required depending on the needs of other software running on the target machine beside SEP.
