Hi Noor,

If you have a Windows Server in your environment, that is the machine which should be used as a Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM).  If not (and you have a small network) then a Windows 7 client (or XP, if absolutely necessary) can serve as a SEPM.

Best practices guide for installing the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM) on a Windows XP operating system.
Article URL http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH91694 
 

SEP 12.1 has clients for Windows and Mac OS, and a "SAV for Linux" (SAVFL) client that can be installed on Linux machines and forward some info to that SEPM.

Here are some aricles that may be of interest:
