Encryption Management Server (PGP Universal Server) and NON-VMWARE virtualization

Created: 03 Jun 2013 | 3 comments

I know that the current certified hardware for running this product do not talks about other non-VMWare virtualization infra-structures.

https://www.symantec.com/encryption-management-server/system-requirements?fid=encryption

So, what I would like to know with this post is:

What is the Roadmap (if any) to support other NON-VMWARE virtualization infra-structures like Citrix XenServer (and even Hyper-V since they support CentOS 5.7, 5.8, 6.0-6.3 x86 and x64 VMGuests)

Best Regards

There is a feature request out there being considered, but I think that's all the information there is at the moment:

ive seen several customers running UniversalServer on HyperV, it's working, but you have to use this "legacy network card", otherwise if you fire up the iso in hyperV VM creation then the NIC is not recoqnized and the whole setup doesnt complete properly.

as Alex_CST said , it's a featurerequest to official support , but if you have a customer which is in need, you can run Universal with this trick,

hyperV yes supports centOS ubuntu whatever.. the problem is that it's only supported if you use those microsoft own hyperV driver/NIC package which you can install "afterwards" on the VM and so you dont have a chance to install during universal_server setup , neither it's not supported to install 3rd party driver packages on the universal , while you cant access the local_CLI cause of lack of the password - as you know you have to change via puttygen/putty SSH session and so you are in need of working network ;-)

Well, with all of this type of thing, you do an assessment of your suipport needs and whether the risk is worth it. I have had it running on open source SLES Xen for a number of years. I felt I was paying enough for the product and didn't need to spend any more than absolutely necessary on the over-the-top hardware requirements. I had it running on a 16Gb VM. Why would I want to waste all the extra money?
