minor version patch of Vmware 5.5 to Vmware 5.5 of Forge11


If a customer apply minor version patches of Vmware 5.5 to Vmware 5.5 of Forge 11, can this be supported by tech support?
And also is there any issue when the customer apply Windows Server security or windows server patches to forge management VM?

Your answer will be appreciated.

Re: minor version patch of Vmware 5.5 to Vmware 5.5 of Forg

The VMware installation on the Forge has been customised to incorporate a wizard for changing the network identity of the appliance during its initial configuration. This may prevent users from installing VMware patches. Micro Focus recommendation is that customers should not install VMware patches except for those released by us as a Forge patch, since we will have verified that it will not disrupt the operation of the solution. If a customer installs a VMware patch themselves then they may be required to remove it in order to receive technical support for the appliance.

With respect to the Forge Management VM, however, it is usually OK to apply Microsoft patches to it.
