MOVE SVM Manager. Required, or optional?

Jump to solution

When using MOVE clients and SVM's is it also required to use the SVM Manager?  The manager seems like a nice option in larger environments, but it seems easier to manually assign clients to SVM's for smaller environments.  If the SVM is optional, then what are the drawbacks to not using the SVM Manager in smaller MOVE environments?

It's not required. We generally recommend that you have a max of 250 Clients assigned to an SVM - this may vary based on traffic/ scan load. The SVM Manager automatically assigns a McAfee MOVE AntiVirus SVM to your MOVE clients based on configurable parameters like scan server load, McAfee ePO tags, and IP address ranges.

There is no drawback really except for you will need to assign the SVMs manually (via policy) to your MOVE clients - and this drawback is only really applicable if you implenteing more than 1 SVM.
