Deploying ESMC VA in Citrix:

Prerequisites

Your IPv4 network is available in the Citrix environment. IPv6 is not supported in the ESMC VA.

The appliance .ovf file is available on the machine where you will deploy ESMC VA.

Pool Admin Permissions are required to import the OVF/OVA package.

Enough storage space must be available to the deploying user, at least 100 GB.

Deployment process

1.Select File > Import.

2.Click Browse, navigate to the esmc_appliance.ova file that you downloaded from the ESET website and click Next.

3.Select the check box I accept the End User License Agreements and click Next.

4.Choose the pool or standalone server where you want to place the ESMC VA and click Next.

5.Place the imported virtual disk in a storage repository and click Next.

6.Map the virtual network interfaces by selecting the Target Network and click Next.

7.Choose to verify the digital signature (optional) and click Next.

8.Select Don't use Operating System Fixup and click Next.

9.Select the network (the same one you selected in step 6 above) where you will install the temporary ESMC VA used to perform the import operation and click Next.

10. Review the settings and click Finish.

 
The deployment process can take some time, during which the Citrix server will appear idle. Do not interrupt it.

See the vendor's documentation on OVF/OVA deployment.

Once the VM is successfully created, power it on. The following information will be displayed:

VA_first_time_config

Open your web browser and enter the IP address of your newly deployed ESMC Appliance in the address bar. You can see the IP address listed in the console window (as shown above). It will say "First time appliance configuration needs to be performed. Please connect using a web browser to: https://[IP address]".

The next step is to configure your appliance via the web interface.

If you do not have a DHCP server in your network, you will need to Set static IP address for the ESMC VA via Management console. If there is no IP address assigned, the following information will be displayed; the URL will not contain an IP address.

If no IP address is assigned, the DHCP server may not be able to assign one. Make sure there are free IP addresses in the subnet where the VA is located.
