Hi Team,

As we understand that Web Gateway will install on ESX-ESXi but we have Hyper V – Microsoft Virtualization environment.

Please advise.

You are correct that Hyper-V currently isn't a supported platform for the Symantec Web Gateway.  This is something Symantec is looking into, but at this time there is no committed date as to when this will happen.

It may work, but it is not supported, so you will be very limited in your support options it is in not working how you expect it to.

SWG is only supported on the VMware ESX Server or Version 4.0, 4.1 or 5 platforms.
