MWG and vmware workstation

Jump to solution

Hello,

I am trying to set up a lab and test MWG features.

I downloaded from Mcafee website this image:

mwgappl-7.7.2.8.0-25114.x86_64.iso

and I installed VMware workstation 14 .

I searched for documents/guides to advise if this setup is possible.

I could only find some docs saying that it is compatible only with ESX and ESXi.

I would like to ask you if MWG can be ran on WMware workstation(or virtual box).

Regards.

Vlad

Hi,

 

I haven't tested other VM hosts but would recommend to follow the installation guide:

https://kc.mcafee.com/resources/sites/MCAFEE/content/live/PRODUCT_DOCUMENTATION/27000/PD27101/en_US/...

 

There under "Set up a virtual appliance" you will find information about ESX, memory, network connection mode and other recommendations.

 

Further information can be found in the following KB articles:
