DCImanager software is installed on:
- platform server — physical or virtual based on KVM, Hyper-V or VMware ESXi virtualization;
- location server — physical or virtual, based on KVM virtualization. Read more in the article Locations. General information.
A platform server can be used as a location server.
Minimal system requirements:
|Platform server||Location server|
|CPU||2.4 GHz||2.4 GHz|
|RAM||8 Gb||8 Gb|
|Disk space||80 Gb||100 Gb|
Intel and AMD processors with x86_64 architecture are supported. Processors with ARM architecture are not supported.
If you use one server for platform and location, you will need at least 180 GB of disk space to run DCImanager.
The amount of disk space consumed depends on the amount of equipment added to DCImanager.
Supported operating system:
- AlmaLinux 8;
- CentOS 7 x64;
- Ubuntu 20.04;
- Astra Linux Common Edition 2.12 (for Infrastructure licenses only).
For DCImanager to work correctly, install the platform on the latest stable version of the operating system.
Install the platform on a fresh installation of the operating system without third-party repositories and additional services. When creating partitions on the hard drive, allocate the maximum size for the root partition.
Allow incoming connections to the ports:
- 22/TCP — for SSH;
- 443/TCP — for https.
We do not recommend disabling the firewalld service. Disabling the service can lead to malfunctioning of the platform.
Do not disable the NetworkManager software on the server with AlmaLinux 8. Disabling the software can lead to malfunctioning of the platform.
