D7 xMS preparation

xCelerated Management System Version 1.0

My first impression about IIG’s xMS technology was great: automate environment provisioning sounds good and automate xCP application deployment  into a VM infrastructure sounds much better. Blueprint deployments, custom environment profiles and reduceing of deployments from weeks to hours were too tempting. Meaningful features like automated monitoring and environment reporting let me be curious.
But be carefull, you need at least one ESXi Server and one vCenter Server to create a VM infrastructure. And the VMware vFabric tc Server is requiered to create and manage Documentum deployments. For monitoring and environment the VMware vFabric HypericEnterprise Software is required.


  • Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 – 64 bit (other operating systems are not supported)
  • VMware ESX Server 4.1 or ESXi Server 5
  • VMware vCenter Server or vCloud Director
  • VMware vFabric tc Server Standard Edition 2.8.0 (Version 2.9.X is not supported)
  • VMware vSphere 5 Client


  • disable firewall and antivirus software
  • disable User Account Control (UAC)
  • enable Remote Desktop Connection
  • install JAVA 64 bit JDK version 1.6.31 (Version 1.7 is not supported)
  • put base VM into windows domain (recommended)
  • download and extract xms-tools.zip
  • copy the installs folder to a shared storage (NAS or file server)
