Cool. I just realized you can upload videos to this site.

Here is a video that demonstrates how to install an instance of MWG to a VMware player.

I have people ask me all the time how to do it, so i did a video to show how.

Argh. it looks like something doesn't work when posting to a message.

Try viewing it here:

Hi All,

Thanks for the reply.

I have checked the documentation. Those seems to be the minimum requirements.

We will be using MWG in a production environment for more than 2000 users. Is the mentioned configuration is OK for that much of load?

Please clarify.

Thanks

Re: Requirements for MWG on a Virtual Platform?

Hello,

I recommend to contact your Sales representative in regards to the sizing questions. It you want to deploy MWG in a virtual environment for production use I strongly recommend to get an official response from McAfee, rather than having your sizing based on a community response. You may end up with a setup that does not work as expected because the sizing is wrong.

Since sizing is critical for a painless operation, please refer to the official ressources.

Best,

Andre
