Installing the Virtual Appliance

To run Haivision Media Platform under a VMware platform:

  1. Download the Haivision Media Platform Virtual Machine Release Package from the Support Portal and extract the files.
  2. Import the .OVA file into VMware's vSphere Hypervisor 5.5 or greater.
  3. Configure the virtual host to meet the following minimum specifications:

    • 12 CPU cores, 16GB RAM, 100GB HDD for OS and apps (thin provision recommended)


      Haivision VM images use two disks:

      • Disk 1 is sparse-provisioned and set up to grow up to 100GB
      • Disk 2 is sparse-provisioned up to 10GB and should be replaced by your organization’s preferred asset storage, NFS mount, or VM storage disk.
    • Using an external, customer-provided NFS for HMP asset storage is strongly recommended for HMP Virtual Edition implementations.
    • Be aware that the default virtual disk size is only 9Gb.
    • Contact Haivision Technical Support before attempting to resize or replace the virtual disk, as this requires access to the HMP command line interface (to configure the virtual disk devices, LVM, file system, and OS).


      Reserve sufficient virtual resources (CPU, RAM, NIC, and HD) to avoid adverse effects to the performance of your system.

  4. Power on the virtual machine.
