Symantec Endpoint Encryption fails to work with VMware SCSI disks (2013159)
- You cannot use Symantec Endpoint Encryption with VMware SCSI disks
- Starting your virtual machine fails with the error:
Symantec Endpoint Encryption has discovered an unsupported storage controller. Contact SSE Technical Support
- When booting your virtual machine, you see a screen with six dots (......), then the virtual machine becomes unresponsive
If you have a virtual machine which already has a SCSI disk, you must change the disk to IDE. For more information on changing a virtual disk from SCSI to IDE in VMware Fusion, see A virtual machine in Fusion fails to boot or fails with a STOP 7B blue screen error (2013268).
