Just a quick question on the new mvm300 applaince
We are currently running with 2 fs1000 (database and manager) +a single fs850 that does our scanning
we have attempted to buy additional fs850's but have been told that this is not possible and that we need to buy the MVM3000 appliance
Ist question is this correct
2nd question is the MVM3000 compatable with our fs1000 setup
Yes the FS850 appliance is no longer being sold. The MVM3000 is the replacement for the FS1000 and is really just a hardware platform. The software you run on that hardware platform is what needs to be compatable and as long as its the same supported version you will not have any issues.
You have asked me a trick question. We first need to define what you mean by support.
If you mean what version of the software will run on the MVM3000 then the answer is all of them.
If you mean what is officially supported the question gets a bit more complicated.The MVM3000 must be thought of as just a hardware platform and we will support that hardware for many years. I don't know offhand how many. You currently have 3 options as to which McAfee Vulnerability Manager software you want to install (6.5 , 6.7, 6.8). 6.5 goes end of life next month so we will officially stop supporting it at that point.
