Symantec Endpoint Protection client not start on WS2008R2

Found this while trying to install/run SEP client 11.0.5002.333 and 11.0.6000.550 on Domain Controllers running Windows Server 2008 R2.  SEP’s client service – “Symantec Management Client” depends on the “System Event Notification” service, which at least on my 3 DCs is startup=disabled.

After changing “System Event Notification” service to automatic, starting it, I was able to start the “Symantec Management Client” service, and a few minutes later that server/DC had new defs and appeared in the SEP Management list of clients.
