VmFirewall on Xen?

Hello, good morning.


I have purchased the vm300 virtual firewall.

I have seen that no downloads are available for the XEN hypervisor at this time.

There are for vmware, kvm, citrix netscaler, etc.

I finally got the vmware virtual machine running on Xenserver after adding some xen libraries so that the parts could communicate correctly.

But I wonder if this poses any problems with Paloalto's support.

Re: VmFirewall on Xen?


You are running the VM on an unsupported hypervisor and with that support is limited in how much they will actually help you. BUT... I haven't actually heard of anyone getting bad support simply because they were running on a non-supported hypervisor. Support will assist you just as they would with anyone else, and if an issue could be linked to the fact that you are running a non-supported enviroment support will simply tell you to move to a supported hypervisor. 

In the end it essentially breaks down to this. 


Basic configuration support: Likely won't have any issues with this, as the hypervisor doesn't really get brought up. 


'hardware' issues: If you notice something like an interface issue or something like that, you likely won't get any love from support.
