Good news: discovered a vestigial load balancer pool that was doing odd things to the virtual IP that's likely to explain why the VIP was doing this "now ya see it, not ya get refused" routine.
Naturally, we're still rather interested in whether anyone is willing to admit they're running MEG7 in production. :-)
The inability to run in Cluster mode simultaneously to doing secure web delivery is a bummer until they fix a bug there, but I believe that hotfix is coming soon.
Heh. Forgot about this thread. Once the mystery of "vegistial load balancer virtual IP" was cleared things seemed to be okay... right up to the time we had a hardware issue on one of the brand new MEG boxes. Since the RMA of that box sanity has come to our MEG7 installation. We haven't pulled this into production just yet, but it at least now looks stable enough to move forward. Barring of course the next bizarre problem around the corner. :-)

I'm running 2 virtual appliances of MEG 7 in production, but they're not clustered. I'm managing them through EPO in case they explode so I can just reinstall them and apply the polices from EPO.
I don't recommend using quarantine manager
Thanks for your response and experience sharing.
Would you be willing to share more (via private message if you prefer) on your MQM experiences? McAfee seems to suggest them for a 2-server setup for a couple of reasons which seemed reasonable. 1) to avoid the possibility of users getting 2 separate digest messages as the only means of managing their queue and 2) to provide additional warning/buffer from a disk filling proposition where in the absence of MQM, you might fill disk on the gateways themselves and they'd grind to halt and not route mail (whereas in a disk full MQM situation, mail will still flow and things somehow queue up on the hopefully not full disk MEG appliances).
I was at the cusp of spinning up an MQM this week in fact.. :-)
If your virtual appliances aren't clustered, what are you load balancing with, or is one a cold standby? I know there are lots of ways to skin the cat here!
Thanks for any info!
