You are seeking information on the platforms supported by Symantec Scan Engine.
The following data shows the latest Platform Support Matrix for Scan Engine 5.2.x and SAV for NAS/Messaging/Caching 5.2.x
It is valid for all releases after the build cited on each combination of major Operating System Version and Architecture.
IMPORTANT: Unless otherwise notified, the following matrix implicitly assumes English as the OS language. However, if and only if the SSE's version is equal to or greater than 5.2.8, each flavor (Standard/Enterprise/Datacenter) of Windows Server 2008 Japanese (x86/x64) will be supported. Note here that "supportability" means the standard support condition will be applied and reported issues will be investigated. This does NOT mean that SSE 5.2.8 or greater is tested and certified against Windows Server 2008 Japanese.

Note: SSE5.2.x is 32-bit application and is not compiled specifically for 64-bit environment. So 32-bit SSE will be installed on 32-bit servers and it will work in compatibility mode on 64-bit servers. Note: All supported Operating Systems except Solaris (SPARC) are supported under the following virtualization infrastructures:
Symantec Scan Engine (SSE) 5.2.8 up to 5.2.14
Symantec Protection Engine (SPE) 7.0
A separate article outlines SPE 7.x requirements.
Note: NAS/SAN solutions have specific requirements with regards to scanning protocol used (RPC/ICAP/Native). Please make sure to carefully check specific requirements with your SAN/NAS vendor, some detailed information can be also found in:
Symantec AntiVirus for Network Attached Storage Integration Guide
Support Matrix for Symantec AntiVirus for Network Attached Storage 5.2.x
Note: Netapp Filer currently is only supported with DataOnTap operating system, in so called "7g" mode. This uses RPC protocol to communicate with Scan Engine/SAV for NAS. Please note usage of RPC protocol requires deployment of Windows version of Scan Engine/SAV for NAS.
