We're running Symantec Enterprise Protection (SEP). We run SEP on all of our servers and workstations. We run SEP on the servers mostly to protect the clients from each other. While it's true that *nix servers tend to be a little less susceptible to malware, they're a great place to store it if the administrators aren't checking for it...
Other than the fact that it's a total resource hog, it appears to be running fine. We did notice some issues such as slower write performance and overactive quarantine procedures with SEP 10 when that was the current version, but since then we forget it's there most of the time.
