 Hi,

Are you trying to install it directly to the O755 or do you mean you are running VMWare ESX or ESXi on there?
If you're trying to install it directly on, it won't work.

SBG is only supported on the specific Dell appliance line or on hardware abstracted by VMWare ESX or ESXi.

Hope that helps
