Installing App Controller on Microsoft Hyper-V

Jun 07, 2013

To install App Controller on Microsoft Hyper-V, you must first install Microsoft Server 2012 with Hyper-V enabled or Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2012 on a computer with adequate hardware resources. To perform the App Controller installation, you use the Hyper-V Manager, which is a Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in. Hyper-V Manager is installed automatically when you enable the Hyper-V role.

You download a compressed ZIP file to install App Controller on Microsoft Hyper-V. You extract the files and then use Hyper-V Manager to install App Controller.

Note: Make sure that you extract the files in the ZIP folder into a different folder before you specify the path to the folder.

After you import the virtual machine, you need to configure the virtual network adapter by associating the adapter to the virtual networks created by Hyper-V. App Controller 2.8 requires one virtual network adapter.

In Hyper-V Manager, you select the server on which you want to install App Controller and then import the virtual machine. When the import starts, your are prompted to specify the path of the folder that contains the App Controller software files.

After the import is complete, you set the App Controller properties in Hyper-V Manager. These settings include:

  • Allow the virtual machine to start and stop automatically with the system.
  • Set the startup order for App Controller.
  • Set the memory size to 4096.
  • Set the number of VCPUs to 2.
