This might seem like a no brainer questions, but I would like to know what McAfee's definition is of a virtual machine.
My reasoning is that we are currently deploying VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) at work. Basically we use thin stations that connect to a VM server. Most of the users desktops are "non_persistent" desktops, meaning that once they log off the machine it is destroyed.
I have not found much info on what exactly can be done to monitor, deploy or work with VirusScan on VDM's.
We are currently using 8.5 patch 6 on Epo 4.0 and I would like to upgrade to 8.7 if there is any major benefits, especially with regards to VDM's/
Does anyone have any insight or maybe you are deploying McAfee to VM systems and have some feedback.
This is why I am reluctant to upgrade to 8.7 at this time.
We currently get spikes in the CPU and memory and are trying to not increase the memory on all systems. We are currently running at 640mb on most Virtual Desktops, but when the updates come in the systems can crawl (this happens even on regular desktops). Mcafee suggests we upgrade to 8.7, but not is it is going to make it even slower.
It would be nice if mcshield didn't use a lot of memory. We will be running tests on systems for running 8.7 patch 1 and see if there are any differences.
