Hello Comunity ,
It is out.
Security Design 12.1 requires Space Platform 12.1
I'm on the way to choose of management software between algosec/tufin and junos space . Let's check it out.

Does anyone object if I split this thread to a new discussion? The topic is revolving around Security Design vs NSM (NSM comments can continue on the original thread, but customers might otherwise miss important Security Design discussion)

Sounds like a good idea to me...

I need a helping hand getting this installed. I am at home with a Mac OS X machine, with a choice of VMWare Fusion or Parallels Desktop. Neither support OVF file format of the virtual appliance version. I tried VMWare's ovftool to convert it, but that tool is throwing errors at me:
Virtual machine has 8192 megabytes of memory, which is outside the range of 4 to 3600 megabytes supported on the host. This may be a general limitation of the host software, or specific to the guest OS selected for the virtual machine.
My Mac has 32 GB of RAM so it must be the tool.
Any thoughts? Could I just use the image version of Space which is designated for USB stick installation on the physical hardware?

use the --lax flag (will relax the OVF conversion) and you'll get a usable file. I love how it says 'Completed with errors" when what it really means is "Abject failure"

Thanks Keith, much appreciated! Here is the result on my end using --lax:
reptilehouse:VMware OVF Tool sascha$ ovftool --lax /Volumes/data/Downloads/space-12.1R1.8.ova /Volumes/data/temp/temp/space12.1.vmx Opening OVA source: /Volumes/data/Downloads/space-12.1R1.8.ova Opening VMX target: /Volumes/data/temp/temp/space12.1.vmx Warning: - Hardware compatibility check is disabled. Writing VMX file: /Volumes/data/temp/temp/space12.1.vmx Disk Transfer Completed Completed successfully
Worked like a champ. Let's see if VMWare Fusion will eat this.

Couple of questions on the virtual appliance:
The OVF file uses VMWare hardware version 4 (quite old). Could we use newer versions instead (thinking 8)? Also, there are no VMWare tools installed in the virtual machine as far as I can tell. Can we install them to enhance performance?
