Symantec declares VMware VMotion unsupported

Symantec declares VMware VMotion unsupported by Jason at

Bad news for VMware VI Enterprise customers everywhere. I just found out I have 110 unsupported production and development VMs in my datacenter. Symantec published Document ID 2008101607465248 on 10/15/08 removing VMware VMotion support from its Symantec Antivirus (SAV) and Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) products.

Operating systems impacted are: All Windows operating systems.

Reported issues include but are not limited to:

* Client communication problems
* Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM) communication issues
* Content update failures
* Policy update failures
* Client data does not get entered into the database
* Replication failures

Bad news indeed, I hope that that Symantec up’s their game and gets this working.
