Getting started and requirements

For system requirements and installation instructions, see VMAN system requirements.

The Recommendations engine used by Virtualization Manager requires additional system resources, specifically 8GB additional memory. When configuring your Virtualization Manager installation, consider the additional resources needed by the Recommendations engine. For information about system requirements of virtual environments of different sizes, see the Virtualization Manager Deployment Guide.

Before installing this version, set your vSphere DRS to manual or partially automated so that it will not automatically move VMs that were moved by the Virtualization Manager Recommendations engine.
