The PCoIP Management Console is intended for deployment within a secured corporate network for the management of PCoIP endpoints that are internal or external (Enterprise) to the network.
Note: PCoIP Management Console must not be accessible from unsecured networks
The PCoIP Management Console must only be accessible by endpoints from the open Internet as described within this guide. Any other exposure to the open Internet is an unsupported use of the product and will void any warranty.
PCoIP Management Console is released in three formats. The first called Open Virtual Appliance (OVA) format with supported hypervisor platforms of VMware ESXi 6.0, 6.5 and 6.7. The second format is the Amazon Machine Image (AMI) format for services delivered using Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). The third format is RPM which is one standard for Linux Administrators to manage software installations. The three formats feature CentOS 7.x, 64 bit as the PCoIP Management Console installation OS.
PCoIP Management Console requires the following minimum system configuration:
|OVA format||AMI format||RPM format|
Caution: Lowering minimum system requirements
Changing minimum system requirements, such as lowering RAM to 4 GB may produce error messages such as "Waiting for the server to start. Please refresh the page to try again." Minimum requirements help ensure you have the greatest chance for a successful deployment.
