Uninstalling the client on a DC

Created: 19 Jan 2008 • Updated: 22 May 2010 | 2 comments
I installed Symantec End Point client on a domain controller. The domain controller wasn't responding to ping requests (even by IP address). Windows firewall was switched off. I found the Symantec firewall was blocking incoming traffic (outgoing traffic was fine, ie I could ping other ip addresses from this DC). through Add/remove programs I uninstalled Network Protection on the DC as well as application protection (it was a requirement to uninstall it when uninstalling network protection). As the DC still wasn't responding to ping requests I rebooted it. Once the DC was rebooted I could not log on to it anymore. I am a member of domain admins.
I performed the same operation on a member server and had no problems.
Does anyone know anything about this problem?
Any help would be appreciated.

 Go into the properties of your local area connection and remove the check mark next to the teefer2 driver. This will get your network back, or you can uninstall the client, then use migration and deployment wizard to create an install package with antivirus and antispyware only. Use the new package for all of the servers on the network

The default ping rule in firewall policy does not work as expected. You've to modify it and
add ICMP type 0,8 with code 0 in both direction.
