Migrating our existing physical ePO 4.5 to ePO4.6 on VM

Hello Everyone


I am planning to migrate our existing physical ePO 4.5 Server to new VMware Server with ePO4.6.


Current Physical Server configurations are:

  Windows Server 2003 SP2 Standard Edition.

Sql 2005

ePO4.5 with VirusScan 8.7 P4 and Antispyware 8.7



Current suggested environment for VM Server

Windows Server 2008 Standard 64Bit

Windows SQL Server 2008.


   I am having 2300 computers in my network. How much minimum memory should i allocate for the VM.

  From ePO4.5 with VirusScan 8.7P4, can i migrate to ePO4.6 with VirusScan 8.8 P3.Any prequisites needed.


Please guide me procedure.

    I suppose you plan to convert your ePO 4.5 physical machine to a virtual one and then upgrade to ePO4.6


    With 2300 computers you should have enough with 4GB RAM and 2 virtual cpu, even with SQL server installed on the same machine.


    Patch 3 for virusscan can only be deployed on Windows 8 and Windows 2012 systems.
