Deploying Unified Manager

Deploying Unified Manager includes downloading software, deploying the virtual appliance, creating a maintenance user name and password, and performing the initial setup in the web UI.

Before you begin

About this task

You can deploy Unified Manager as a virtual appliance on a VMware ESXi server.

You must access the maintenance console by using the VMware console, and not by using SSH.

VMware Tools are not included in the Unified Manager .ova file, and must be installed separately.

After you finish

After finishing the deployment and initial setup, you can either add clusters, or configure additional network settings in the maintenance console, and then access the web UI.
