ESMC VA implementation phases and maintenance

The implementation of ESMC Virtual Appliance consists of the following main phases that are necessary for successful deployment and configuration:

1.ESMC Appliance deployment process -  actual deployment of ESMC Virtual Appliance OVA file on your Hypervisor.

2.ESMC Virtual Appliance configuration - post-deployment configuration done via web interface of the ESMC VA. It is a configuration page that lets you choose appliance type and then enter specific details and properties required for that particular ESMC VA type to run correctly.

Further configuration and management is done via the TUI (Text-based User Interface) and Webmin:

1.ESMC Virtual Appliance Management Console - allows you to perform maintenance operations such as back up and restore, password changes, factory reset, etc.

2.Webmin Management Interface - makes for an easy management of your ESMC VA.

Upgrade, migration and disaster recovery procedures:

ESMC VA upgrade/migration - in case you want to upgrade your ESMC VA to the latest version, see this section for details and step-by-step procedure. Also, the same procedure applies in case you need to migrate your ESMC VA.

ESMC VA disaster recovery - follow this procedure if ESMC VA stopped working and it is not possible to fix the problem or if you are unable to recover a damaged ESMC VA instance.
