Symantec Drive Encryption on Windows Servers?

This issue has been solved. See solution.

I am a bit confused, because when I look for a FIPS 140-2 compliant solution for a Windows server, I see mention of "Symantec Drive Encryption on Windows Servers", but when I look at the actual Symantec Product description for Symantec Drive Encryption, I see " for desktops, laptops, and removable media" Could someone steer me in the right direction, so that I can get an appropriate Symantec product to encrypt some drives on several servers?
