What do I need to do to use a vShield-enabled Shared Insight Cache?

A vShield-enabled Shared Insight Cache runs in a Symantec Endpoint Protection Security Virtual Appliance. Windows-based Guest Virtual Machines (GVMs) use VMware vShield Endpoint to access the Shared Insight Cache.

Note:

Symantec supports the use of a vShield-enabled Shared Insight Cache only in VMware ESX/ESXi infrastructures.

Table: Tasks that you need to perform to use a vShield-enabled Shared Insight Cache

Step

Task

Step 1

Install a Security Virtual Appliance on an ESX/ESXi host.

See What do I need to do to install a Security Virtual Appliance?.

Step 2

Install the VMware EPSEC driver on each GVM so that they can communicate with the Security Virtual Appliance.

See VMware software requirements for the Guest Virtual Machines.

Step 3

Enable the GVMs (clients) to use Shared Insight Cache. You perform this task from the Virus and Spyware Protection policy in the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager.

See Enabling Symantec Endpoint Protection clients to use a vShield-enabled Shared Insight Cache.

After you enable GVM clients to use a vShield-enabled Shared Insight Cache, you can optionally configure administrator notifications for Security Virtual Appliances that go offline.

See Setting up administrator notifications.
