Before configuring HALB from the Remote Application Server console, first import a HALB appliance to either of the following hypervisor platforms: Microsoft Hyper-V or VMware. An appliance is a pre-configured virtual machine (including the operating system and other relevant settings).
For VMware, the appliance should be imported with either the OVA or zipped VMDK appliance file obtained from the following location: http://www.parallels.com/products/ras/download/server/links
If deployed via the OVA file, the VM is applied with machine specifications already configured. Alternatively, deployment via the VMDK file deploys the VM without pre-configured specifications.
The minimum specifications for this VM are outlined below:
- 1 CPU
- 256 MB RAM
- 1 Network Card
For Microsoft Hyper-V, the appliance should be imported with the VDH file obtained from this location: https://www.parallels.com/products/ras/download/links/
