We've been happily running ePO 4.6.x under ESXi 5.1 for the last 6 months or so without problems.
I dont know why Mcafee says it is incompatible, I am running ePO 4.6 P4 with no issues.
Thank you for your reply guys, but I need an answer from Mcafee team as my customer had concerns after seeing it is not compatible.
It is just to eliminate the incompatibility possibility when facing any issues in the future.
You should log a support case with McAfee then if you need something from them!
same here running under VMware with zero issues.
The technical definition of compatibility means it's been tested by McAfee and specifically found not to have any problems.
Please understand that it may well function correctly based on peer usage, but that does not mean it's been formally tested by McAfee.
Therefore it can't officially be rubber-stamped as' compatible' until that occurs.
I hope you can understand the difference
Thank you for the clarification rackroyd. But if any problem happened with this setup, is it still supported from McAfee when we open a case with the support team ?
I think we would likely still look at the case, but if it later turned out to be specifically due to ESXi 5.1 somehow we would reserve the right to call it an unsupported scenario which may affect the options for resolution.
If it could be proven not to be specific to an ESXi version it would not be a concern.
