    Policy Enforcer Installation Overview

    Policy Enforcer is delivered as an OVA package to be deployed inside your VMware ESX network. As with other Juniper Networks virtual appliances, Policy Enforcer requires either a VMware ESX server version 4.0 or later or a VMware ESXi server version 4.0 or later that can support a virtual machine with the following configuration:

    • 1 CPU
    • 8-GB RAM
    • 120-GB disk space

    If you are not familiar with using VMware ESX or EXSi servers, see VMware Documentation and select the appropriate VMware vSphere version.
