    Default Multi domain Management (R75) on VMware ESXi 4.1

    Has anyone tried to install the multi domain management server ver R75 on VMware ESXi 4.1. The checkpoint site currently only list support for up to 4.0, I am assuming that they havent yet tested on 4.1.

    Works and officially supported are two different things. Should it work? Likely. Is it supported yet? Trying to get an answer to that.

    ESX support is actually related to GW operations. It is about driver and networking integration with standard VMware APIs and tools.

    Any management server can run 100% OK with VMware. "Not supported" situation can only be a concern if you actually disclose it to Check Point support. VMware environment does not have any reflection on SPLAT, unless you install it as VE. CPINFO from MDS on VMware does not have any indication it is on VMware.

    I have it running in my lab on a Dell 2850 Poweredge with ESX 4.1

    no problems so far :-) so i think it should work on ESXi 4.1
