As an official validation of this major product release, the Trend Micro team has tested the following case which is supported:

  • IWSVA can be installed as a virtual server on a Microsoft Hyper-V virtual environment.
  • IWSVA can be installed and deployed as a single bridge network (one ingress, one egress with virtual ports accordingly) in a transparent bridge deployment mode.

However, we received an inquiry for “multiple-link” installation upon the previous point:

  • Inquiry:

    Support and extend this scenario to multiple bridge networks (“more than 1/ingress-1/egress”) within one IWSVA server (in one HyperV virtual instance).

  • Current product support:

    After our validation, this use case (not listed in the product's Administrator Guide) was not recommended and supported.

    The configuration may cause unexpected drops of network performance.

  • Our recommendation:

    We urge customer not to deploy IWSVA with this configuration.

    Customers should look forward to other deployment and installation options as suggested by the Trend Micro engineering and support teams.
