You can download the Log & Event Manager evaluation software from the SolarWinds LEM website. After you complete the registration, a web page displays where you can download the Log & Event Manager evaluation file for Hyper-V.

  1. Start the Microsoft Hyper-V Manager and log in with administrator privileges.
  2. Select the action to import a virtual machine.
  3. In the Import Virtual Machine window, click Browse and select the following fie in the SolarWinds Log and Event Manager folder:

    Deploy First - LEM Virtual Appliance.ova

  4. Complete the setup wizard.

  5. In the Settings box, select Move or restore the virtual machine (use the existing unique ID).
  6. Click Import to install the LEM virtual machine in Hyper-V and complete the deployment.

    The OVA file is imported into your virtual machine.

  7. In the Hyper-V Manager, configure additional settings (such as Memory, CPU, networking, and storage space) to complete your configuration.

    By default, the virtual machine is configured with the minimum requirements. The resource reservations will be set automatically to ensure optimal performance.

    If you expect your LEM deployment to receive more than 15 million events per day, adjust your system resource reservations. See Reserve system resources in the virtual environment for information about configuring resource reservations for a large deployment.

Start the virtual appliance

  1. Locate SolarWinds Log and Event Manager in the Actions column and click Start.
  2. Record the IP address that displays after the virtual appliance starts.
  3. Open a supported web browser.
  4. Start the LEM Web Console by entering the IP address you recorded in the Console screen.

Supported and unsupported URLs

If you are using the hostname for the URL, add the LEM hostname or IP address into DNS.

Port 8080 is unsecure and is automatically disabled after activation has been completed. Port 8443 is always available.
