About using DLO Administration Server on VMware ESX: DLO supports the Administration server and the DLO database on VMware ESX server 3.x and 4.x. Ensure that your virtual environment meets all the hardware requirements and the recommendations that VMware specifies. Hardware that VMware does not support may cause unknown issues. For example, DLO may not function correctly if your virtual machine hardware does not support VMware. See the VMware documentation for information on supported configuration.

Note: Upgrade to DLO 6.1 MP7 is supported from the following Server/Client versions: 6.0 MP3, 6.1 GA, 6.1 MP1, 6.1 MP2, 6.1 MP3, 6.1 MP4, 6.1 MP5A and 6.1 MP6

About using DLO Maintenance Server on VMware ESX: The maintenance server should be installed on a physical system. Installing the maintenance server on VMware can lead to performance issues. Symantec recommends that the storage location should be located on a physical system and not in a VMware environment. Having a storage location on VMware may lead to performance issues. Intensive I/O activities like data migration or reporting may take a longer time than expected.
