This ESMC Virtual Appliance type runs ESMC MDM on a dedicated VM. Suitable for enterprise-sized networks, but can be also used for small business.

Before you start configuring ESMC MDM Appliance, create a Mobile Device Connector certificate in the Web Cosole of ESMC Server that will be connected to your ESMC MDM Appliance.

You can configure ESMC MDM in two ways:

1.Configuration with Web Console credentials

Mandatory configuration fields for ESMC MDM Appliance:

Password - this password is important because it will be used in the VM and ESMC database.

ESMC Server Hostname - type in the ESMC Server hostname or IP address, so that ESMC MDM can connect to ESMC Server.

ESMC Server Port - the default ESMC Server port is 2222, if you are using a different port, replace the default port with your custom port number.

Web Console Port - the default  Web Console port is 2223, if you are using a different port, replace the default port with your custom port number.

Web Console password - This password is important because you need it to access the ESMC Web Console.
