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, you 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
- Set the number of VCPUs
