Deploy the LEM Virtual Appliance

Table of contents

You can deploy Log & Event Manager using the VMware vSphere or Microsoft Hyper-V hypervisor. The default deployment uses swi-lem as the hostname and pulls the network configurations from the DHCP server. You can configure a static IP address or hostname after you complete the deployment.

By default, LEM deploys with 8GB RAM and 2 CPUs on the vSphere and Hyper-V hypervisor platforms.

Before you begin

  • Use an account with local administrative rights.
  • Review your IT policy and verify the account is not subject to any local or group policy restrictions.
  • Use the Run as administrator option when launching the installer on a system running Windows Server 2008.
