There were 0 errors and 28 warnings, including 15 deprecation warnings 

Cause

Unified Policy is written to be compatible with the SGOS 6.5 branch. For this reason, it does not used the latest 6.6 policy expressions

Using 6.6 policy expressions would prevent Unified Policy from being used with SGOS 6.5 at all (as they are unknown on this version), so we will not change this for the meantime

This is expected behaviour, as Threatpulse policy does not offer support for both 6.5 and 6.6 policies separately.
 

Resolution

These deprecation warnings cannot be prevented if you are running SGOS 6.6

Blue Coat will be reviewing this policy in the future as the support status of 6.5 changes

Workaround

These warnings are purely cosmetic and will not cause a problem installing Unified Policy on your ProxySG running SGOS 6.6. They can be safely ignored.
