Do you have any update about the support for Symantec Messaging Gateway 9.5 on VMWare ESXi 5?

We want to use Symantec Messaging Gateway 9.5.3 but we have ESXi version 5 servers so is it supose to work and is it supported?

It is was never tested in our QA certification, so we cannot support it. That said, we have not seen any issues specifially caused by ESXi 5. Version 10 should be fully QA tested and certified as far as I have heard.

Do we know when version 10 will be release?

Not at this time, but you can get in on the 10 Beta program still.

For what its worth, I'm running them on vSphere 5 with no issues at all.

We are hoping to do some QA testing on the upcoming 9.5.4 release to validate support of ESXi 5 a bit ahead of the 10.0 release if we can. Exact timing to be determined.

That would be great!  SMG is the last product holding us back from moving to vSphere 5.

We are running the SMG 9.5.3-3 on ESXi 4.1U2. This SMG 9.x product is also our last product, why we delayed the upgrade to ESXi 5.

We are running 24x7 and I didn't upgrade better (I have no time to debug, if it is O.K. or not).

I agree with EOS58 that it would be very fine to test the 9.x version......
