VMWorld 2010 is right around the corner! This is an exciting conference for Symantec Endpoint Virtualization and we hope you'll be stopping by to say hello while you're at the conference.

We've got lots of technical sessions to share information with our community, as well as a booth where you can drop by and see our products live in action and talk with product experts about the challenges that virtualization addresses. We want to hear your stories as well, and find out what you're doing. Of course, a technology conference doesn't have to be all about technology, so we're throwing a party for our customers, have a game show planned, and of course will be giving away lots of cool prizes.

Join us for the Symantec Super Session
SS1006: Wednesday, Sept 1 at 1:30pm in Room 134 (Moscone North)

As with the rest of the Connect communities, Endpoint Virtualization will have a newsletter of it's own containing the most interesting information that has appeared in the community in the previous month. Anyone remember the old SVS Newsletter? Well if you do, then you know what I'm talking about - you won't want to miss an issue! But you will if you don't subscribe! It's simple. Go to your user profile and click on the "Newsletters" tab (see? not rocket science), then check the box next to "Endpoint Virtualization", finally click "Save Settings" and you're done!

One note - occasionally our newsletters end up in your spam folder (imagine that!) I set up a filter in my email client that makes sure everything from goes to my inbox. I work here, it seemed like the right thing to do!

Sign up now and Happy Reading!

UPDATE!! We've been toiling busily over the past few weeks, testing and tweeking code, then testing some more. It's time to pull back the curtain and and introduct the newest member of the Connect family - the Endpoint Virtualization community. With all the testing we did behind the scenes, there is bound to be some surprises here and there (I've already found a few) and over the next few days we'll be sprucing things up. If you see something that doesn't belong here or looks a little odd, send me a private message and I'll take care of it.

Thanks for your patience and welcome to the new community - I'm baking everyone cookies!

The time is finally here and in the coming weeks Endpoint Virtualization will be moving to its own, dedicated Connect community. As with every move, there is preparation...

For Symantec Workspace Virtualization (SWV) 6.1 SP4 we’ve changed our default file package format from VSA to the new XPF package.  While VSAs will still be available as an Export option for the time being—XPFs bring numerous benefits to not just SWV but Symantec Workspace Streaming (SWS) so the whole suite as a whole.

The reason for this change in format is we wanted a single package type that could be used in SWV or SWV without any additional modifications so, in other words, if you have an XPF you can import it into SWV or load it into the streaming server as is.

What it is
XPF, or Extensible Package Format, is the new package format going forward for the Workspace Suite.  It replaces VSAs and Streaming Snapshots but not VRAs, VPAs, Tracking Packages or Upgrade Packages.  

From a virtualization standpoint there’s very little change over VSAs:  SWVadmin and SVScmd both behave the same, regular and...

At Symantec Vision 2010 - Symantec and Intel demonstrated an interesting use case for out-of-band management.

Take a look at

Imagine being able to reclaim an application license even when the remote system is powered off.   See the demo

The Customer Preview for SWV 6.2 is now live up on the Symbeta site, we're no longer using  This also includes SWS 6.2 as well as a preview of Wise Virtual Composer 6.2.

With 6.2 we're introducing a new package format named XPF that will contain both streaming and virtualization information so you'll no longer have to convert a VSA into something that SWS can consume.

To create an XPF you'll need to convert a VSA using Wise Virtual Composer, it's a fairly simple process, however, WVC currently only allows for you to convert a VSA into a XPF.  To do any layer editing you'll need to still use SVSadmin.

You can download the preview from
