Question/Issue:
Is VMware VMotion ESX server supported with Symantec AntiVirus and Symantec Endpoint Protection?

A few customers have reported problems with Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager with VMware VMotion ESX server. These problems may or may not be related to the presence of VMware VMotion or the presence of the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager.

Some the problems include:
