Access Protection & VMware?

I have a question that doesn't seem to be addressed in the docs.

We have many VMware virtual computers that are running as servers. I treat them basically the same as other ePO clients, in terms of policies, depending on what department/group I put them in.

However, we just had a problem with one that isn't something I had noticed before...on one of the virtual servers, we were getting nearly 99% CPU utilization while that server was not busy. Well, it turns out that the Access Protection Properties tab on that server has an entry I had not noticed before: "Virtual Machine Protection". This allows you to Block or Report on any modification to the VMware program & settings, similar to the Access Protection Rules on the ePO server allows you to Block or Report any modification to the McAfee program & settings...

But, the Virtual Machine Protection settings only reside on the clients, not on the ePO server, at least as far as I can find.

Does this mean that to change these settings on all our VMware clients, I need to go to each individual client and make those changes? Tell me it ain't so!

If you are using ePO 4.0 you just need to check the latest VSE extension into the server and you will find the VMWare options under VirusScan

We've checked in the package for patch 8, but for some reason the server won't check in the extension packages; keeps telling me:
"Package missing required pkgcatalog.z file "

Never mind; I got it. Was trying to check in incorrectly.

For checking the extension package you have to go to Config->Extensions->add new extension
