SEP 12.1 on the Servers

Created: 04 Jan 2013 • Updated: 07 Jan 2013 | 4 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.


Are we still advised to not install Proactive Threat Protection on the Servers, and Network threat protection on the ISA Servers.

If yes can you explain to me in simple terms why is Proactive Threat Protection not supported on the servers and why should  we not install Network threat protection on the ISA Servers.

I'm asking this because there are a lot of attacks generated by the ISA servers and NTP is installed. Would you advise me to remove this component and why?

Thank you

In case you have SEP 12.1, you may proceed with installing all features on servers (32 bit / 64 bit). All features including PTP and IPS / NTP are supported on Server OS.
