Mcafee web proxy VMs compatibility with VMware v7

We are planning to upgrade our VMware environment from v6.5 to v7. This can have an implication on OVA/OVF compatibilities. Can Mcafee secure web gateway(v9.2.9) virtual servers in their current form, can be live migrate onto a physical host running VMware ESXi v7 please?

Dear @kerna.support ,

 

the Installation Guide say's - no. If you want to use ESXi v7 I would suggesting to use our 10.x version. This is also tested against ESXi v7 successfully. 

Best Regards,
Sergej

Re: Mcafee web proxy VMs compatibility with VMware v7

Hi, I know you said that Web Gateway version 9.2.9 doesn't support Vmware v7 and if I want to go onto Vmware v7 I need to update to version 10.x. But what would be the affected if they host they resided on was VMware v6.5 (the current version) but the vCentre server that manages that host was on VMware v7? Thanks

Hi @kerna.support 

 

I'm not aware if you can manage your Hosts this was. However I would expect Host version on which the device is hosted is crucial here. The Version 10.x is our controlled release and is considered to be stable as well. If new Feature is necessary to continue I would suggesting using version 10.x

 

Best Regards,
Sergej
