 I'm delighted to announce that we have shipped the latest update to Symantec Brightmail Gateway.
The v8.0.3 release is a really important one as we get closer and closer to releasing version 9.0 next year.
This update includes support for VMWare vSphere 4.0 as well as fixing over 75 bugs.

This most important thing to note about this release however, is that it will be a pre-requisite version prior to upgrading to the forthcoming version 9.0.
In the simplest terms:

  • When 9.0 is released, it will ONLY be available for upgrade from 8.0.3.
  • If you are on 8.0.2 or older, you will NOT be able to upgrade directly to 9.0.

The release notes for 8.0.3 are attached to this post, go forth and upgrade.

Here's some information you should be aware of before upgrading to the forthcoming Symantec Brightmail Gateway 8.0.2 release.


Notification type: New version will be available – Important information to read prior to updating on VMware environments
Product: Symantec Brightmail Gateway
Version: 8.0.1
Patch: 8.0.2
Other Hardware/Software/Environment: VMware ESX Server 3.0.2 or prior with virtual LSI SCSI controller

Action required for customers using Virtual Edition of Symantec Brightmail Gateway and VMware ESX Server 3.0.2 or prior with virtual LSI SCSI controller. Prior to updating to 8.0.2., Symantec is strongly recommending that customers assure themselves that they are current with VMware 3.5 or later prior to upgrading to Brightmail Gateway 8.0.2 to prevent loss of functionality.  An alternative workaround is provided if VMware 3.5 is not available.
