I'm starting a training class in two days that requires us to use Windows Server 2008. What I have done is installed Server 2008 in a VM on my laptop (works fine and is what the instructor suggested if people can do it so they can work from home). Anyway, I don't care to pay for a server-based Anti-Virus program (simply because I only need it for about 6 months and then don't need it).
Are there any FREE AV apps out there that will work with Windows Server 2008. I've seen ClamWin, but also want to see if there are others.
Now, here's the tricky part. We are using three VMs (all from the same install medium) so we aren't activating them. The book that came with the CDs (from Microsoft Press) says to simply "reload" the activation system so that we can get a full 180 days of use from it. But we are running 3 VMs per machine. This is in an educational environment an the software was provided with the required textbook from Microsoft. So, basically, since we aren't activating the product on any of the VMs, I doubt we can use MSE on them.
Any suggestions? I don't expect us to be surfing the 'net from them, but they will be exposed to a network with Internet access, so I just want to make sure. Plus, the host OS (my Win7 laptop) will have AV on it.
