The SmartEvent Software Blade can only be enabled on the active server in Management High Availability environment

- It is supported to use different hardware models. For example, Smart-1 3150 for one Management server and Smart-1 5150 for another. Make sure that the appliances can handle the log rate in your environment (see the appliance datasheet).
- Management HA between a Virtual Machine in VMWare and a real physical machine was tested and supported.
