All supported operating systems
What To Do
The functionality of the SafeGuard Enterprise Server and Management Center on VM-Ware 7.0, 8.0 and 9.0 has been thoroughly tested during the QA- cycle of the product.
There are currently no known problems regarding the use of SafeGuard Enterprise Server and Management Center in such environments, nor are there any known reasons why there should be an issue.
The virtual machine software itself may have limitations (e.g. no, or only limited, USB support) which could limit the functionality of our own products (e.g. no smartcard/token logon on POA level possible if you are running it in a Virtual PC environment without USB support).
As software manufacturer typically modify their products on a regular basis, this statement may change in the future.
