Setting up an ironPort lab? How to learn?

Hi!

I am interesting in learning ironPort as my company have one so i wonder if there is a way to simulate an ironPort like you can with swtiches and routers in Packet Tracer? Or can i install the software anyhow in a virtual machine some how?

Thanks for the help!

From the installation manual for virtual appliances and release notes:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/security/esa/esa8.0/release_notes/ESA_8.0.1_Release_Notes.pdf

"Cisco UCS servers (blade or rack-mounted) are the only supported hardware platform for the virtual appliance. VMware ESXi version 4.x and 5.0 are the only supported virtualization hypervisors. Any other hardware platform or VMware hypervisor will be supported as Best Effort. Cisco does not support non-VMware hypervisors."

Having said that it is an OVF file.  In my lab I run it under VMware Player and it's fine for test or learning purposes.  I haven't tried it under Hyper-V.
