1 It should be noted that core 6.x agents running on Windows x64 platforms currently only support running in WOW64 (32-bit emulation mode). This limits the core agent to seeing only those files and registry entries in the 32-bit environment. Starting with Notification Server 7.1, the Symantec Management Agent adds native 64-bit support.

2 Microsoft ended support for Windows 2000 on July 13, 2010, hence support for Windows 2000 agents has been removed in the 7.0 SP5 release. Base agent functionality using a 7.0 SP4 agent in a 7.0 environment will provide limited functionality for the agent computers as they are upgraded.

3 Monitor Packs for Servers support only agentless monitoring of Windows Server 2008 R2 Core Edition servers.

4 The Mac OS X agent does not support PC Transplant, Monitor Solution, Application Management, Software Virtualization Client Functionality, the WiseScript scripting tool, or Application Metering.

5 The Linux agent does not support PC Transplant, Application Management, Software Virtualization Client Functionality, Software Portal, the WiseScript scripting tool, or Application Metering.

6 VMware ESX and ESXi 3.x supports Inventory for Network Devices, Network discovery at a hardware level, and Monitor Solution only.

7 The UNIX agent does not support PC Transplant, Application Management, Software Virtualization Client Functionality, Software Portal, the WiseScript scripting tool, Application Metering, or Patch Management.

8 VMware ESX and ESXi 4 supports Inventory for Network Devices, and Network Discovery only. Starting with the Symantec Management Platform 7.1, ESX and ESXi 4.x servers will be managed as agentless.

9 IA-64 support on NS 6.x is provided by running PA-RISC binaries under the HP-UX Aries translation engine which is included as a core component of HP-UX. IA-64 support with the 7.x version is provided natively.

10 For additional support information for Deployment 6.9, please refer to the following article:

http://www.symantec.com/docs/DOC2079

11 In 7.1 SP1, Mac OS X 10.7 is only available through a special point fix posted on September 19, 2011. Please refer to the following article:http://www.symantec.com/docs/HOWTO58968

12 In NS 6.x Mac OS X 10.6 support is limited to Altiris Agent and basic inventory, while none of the solutions support it. Basic inventory and AA support is available through a special point-fix. Please refer to the following article:

http://www.symantec.com/docs/HOWTO21457

13 Only basic Zones and LPARs support provided. We do not gather any additional inventory about the environment like guest-host mapping and we do not support running in child zones.

14 Software detection rules support for OS X is added in 7.5.

15 Starting with version 10.8, Apple no longer refers to their OS as Mac OS X, but only as OS X.

17Inventory, Software Management and Patch only.
