Virtual Appliance Installations for JSA and Log Manager


You can install JSA and Log Manager on a virtual appliance. Ensure that you use a supported virtual appliance that meets the minimum system requirements.

You can install JSA on your virtual appliance through an appliance installation.

Appliance installation

An appliance installation is a JSA installation that uses the version of RHEL included on the JSA ISO. An appliance installation requires you purchase an RHEL license. Contact your JSA sales representative for more information about purchasing an RHEL license. You do not need to configure partitions or perform other RHEL preparation as part of an appliance installation. Choose this option if RHEL is not already installed.


If the installer does not detect that RHEL is installed, an appliance installation is performed automatically.

To install a virtual appliance, complete the following tasks in sequence:

  • Create a virtual machine.

  • Install JSA software on the virtual machine.

  • If your virtual appliance is a managed host, add your virtual appliance to the deployment.


Install no software other than JSA and Red Hat Enterprise Linux on the virtual machine.
