In addition to this, you will need around 200 MB - 350 MB per endpoint product you are downloading from Sophos. For example, if you download three security software products - for Windows 2000 and later, Mac and Linux - then around 700 MB would be required in the Documents and Settings folder.
Minimum database size
You will need a minimum of 1 GB disk space for data.
Maximum database size
For Microsoft SQL Server 2008, there is no limit apart from that set by the administrator.
To enable Enterprise Manager to communicate with managed workstations, open ports 8192 and 8194 on the computer where Enterprise Manager is installed. To enable Sophos Update Manager to download security software from Sophos, open port 80 on the computer where Enterprise Manager is installed.

This issue does not arise if you use Sophos TDL3 Rootkit Cleanup Tool version 1.2 or later, available for downloading from the Sophos website.
To work around this issue, remove any installations of Sophos TDL3 Rootkit Cleanup Tool 1.1 prior to installing Sophos Endpoint Security and Control 9.7 on computers. Do not install Sophos TDL3 Rootkit Cleanup Tool 1.1 on computers running Sophos Endpoint Security and Control. Use Sophos TDL3 Rootkit Cleanup Tool 1.2 or later instead.

When creating an Update Manager distribution, you cannot reference new shares named SophosUpdate because "SophosUpdate" is now a reserved share name used for the default share.
Workaround: When creating new shares, use other names such as "Update".
In updating policies, when you are selecting a primary or secondary update location, the drop-down list shows the default share paths only in NetBIOS format, for example \\Server\SophosUpdate, although you may need to use the Fully-Qualified Domain Name form, for example \\server.de.acme\SophosUpdate.
Workaround: Type the FQDN path into the server location update path field.
To work around this problem, do one of the following.
