Hey guys, quick question.

Is it necessary to have anti virus software on win server 2003, and 2008 even though we have a sonic wall? Also, if the answer is yes, is it necessary to have the anti virus software also installed on the 3 virtual servers we have running also? The virtual servers are running domain controlllers, file servers, and one is being used for specific software.

Thanks!

-Jerry :D

Yes to all 3 although servers is optional.

The only reason you would ahve it on a server would be from a worm hitting the network and self replicating.

Just having a sonicwall is not enough.  You need to have the antivirus subscription for that sonicwall.  Sonicwall uses Mcafee.  In addition to their service we also have Norton for the servers and pcs [we have a majority of thin clients and we don't run Norton on the Citrix servers but we do on all the app/storage/DC servers.  Point here is to use two different antivirus soft wares.
