Server Policy Best Practices

This issue has been solved. See solution.


I have a few Macintosh 10.6.8 and 10.7.4 (and maybe 10.8 shortly) servers which I would like to install SEP 12.1 on.

I also have Windows 2008R2 Servers.

Is there a best practices policy template for Macintosh and Windows servers and clients.

For example, I'm using balanced policy on everything, yet I'd like to maybe use high performance on Windows servers and Mac servers.  Or maybe the question is should I be using high performance policy on Windows Servers?

That said, with what little testing I've already done, it looks like there are no policies specific to the Macintosh - meaning there is no change in settings for Macintosh clients between Balanced, High Security, or High Performance policies.  So is there a preferred policy for Macintosh servers?
