Implementing Web Gateway 7.0 as virtual appliance

Dear Experts,


We are in process of evaluation and for that I need to show this web gateway product to our department head, how it works. I need to go for a virtual appliance in test environment, But I could not get any detailed outline and implementation guide for virtual environment.. The guide I found on website is McAfee Web Gateway 7.0 product guide does not explain in deep details about settings of a virtual appliance.


I specifically need to know, if installing in a virtual environment Esxi 4.1 or 5.0, how many virtual switches are required, how many v NIC and physical NIC ? Presently we are running Esxi 4.1 and have  VSwitch 0 and VSwitch 1 on it, there are different vLAN in these two virtual switches and different production machines are running on it. Physically on this hardware there are 4 nic on this physical hardware DL 380 G7. Two physical NIC are working with vSwitch 0 and two are working with vSwitch1.


Now, I need to know details for virtual appliance deployment that Do I need standalone v switch and physical NIC, if yes what are the details, what about promiscuos settings on VMware LAN virtual switch?


I will also explain what we want to test,


- Which employee visiting which website, how much time spent on internet

- protection from malware in real time

- block file by file type

- controlling internet applications like we want to block team viewer

- reporting tool to generate different type of reports

- user authentication from windows active directory


If any other details needed , please let me know, I will provide details.
