Before you install and configure the virtual SMU, consider the following:

  • A minimum amount of resources must be available for each VM if the hypervisor is configured to enforce minimum reservations. For more information, see Memory and CPU resource allocations.
  • The following SMU software versions support up to 10 managed servers or clusters:
    • VMware vSphere® (ESXi): Version 12.5.4038.04 or later.
    • Hyper-V: Version 12.7.4221.xx or later.

    Earlier SMU software versions support up to two managed servers or clusters.

  • Open virtual appliance/application (OVA) is the standard distribution format of a virtual SMU OS for VMware. An OVA is a compressed archive (tarball) of Open Virtualization Format (OVF) files, including configuration and sparse disk image files.

    A zip file containing a Virtual Hard Disk (VHDX) file is the standard distribution format of a virtual SMU OS for Hyper-V.
