You can run the IGEL UMS with Windows and Linux 64-bit systems (x86_64).

For the supported operating systems, see the "Supported Environment" section of the release notes

Your hardware and software must meet the following minimum requirements:

UMS Complete Installation

  • At least 4 GB of RAM (6 GB recommended)
  • At least 1 GB of free disk space (plus database system)

Individual Console Installation

  • At least 1.5 GB of RAM (2 GB recommended)
  • At least 250 MB of free disk space
Under Linux, an X11 system is required. It is required by the UMS Administrator application which can only be launched on the same machine as the UMS Server.
As an alternative to a local console installation, you can execute the UMS Console as a Java Web Start application too. The console does not need to be installed here. If necessary, it can be downloaded from the UMS Server and executed. Further information can be found under UMS Console via Java Web Start.
Do not install the UMS Server on a domain controller system!
Manually modifying the Java runtime environment on the UMS Server is not recommended.
Running additional Apache Tomcat web servers together with the UMS Server is likewise not recommended.

Database Systems (DBMS)

For details on the supported database systems, see the "Supported Environment" section of the release notes. Details of the requirements when installing and operating the database can be found in the documentation for the particular DBMS.

High Availability

For installation requirements for High Availability, see Installation Requirements.

The embedded database cannot be used for a High Availability network. You can use the embedded database only for a dedicated test installation with only a single server for the UMS Server and Load Balancer.

All UMS Servers and UMS Load Balancers must reside on the same VLAN. Network traffic must be allowed over UDP broadcast port 6155, and TCP traffic and UDP broadcast traffic over port 61616. For more information on UMS ports, see UMS Communication Ports.

Note: IGEL UMS Server HA is not supported in cloud environments like Azure / AWS as they do not allow broadcast traffic within their networks.
