Can you McAfee Pre-Boot & Encrypt a Windows Client that is virtual either hosted on a VmWare ESXi 5.5 server?
I am used to encrypting physical hardware like desktops and laptops. Our VM admins are asking if you can encrypt and use McAfee Pre-Boot on virtual client, Windows 7 client, hosted on a VmWare ESXi server?
Currently, I have several physical workstations that I use to test McAfee Drive Encryption. They are thinking that I don't need those and instead use VM's for testing. I am not too sure if it is possible or if I would have issue if I call support.
We are currently using McAfee Drive encryption 22.214.171.1240.

I use VMware for testing basic functionality. However preboot interacts with the hardware and VMs can't do that. I start with a VM for new version testing but always use the physical hardware to test deploying the MDE software.
