You can run the IGEL UMS with Windows and Linux 64-bit systems (x86_64). For details on the supported operating systems, see the Supported Environment 6.05.100 section of the release notes.

Your hardware and software must meet the following minimum requirements:

Standard UMS (Includes UMS Server and UMS Administrator)

  • At least 5 GB of RAM
  • At least 2 GB of free disk space

With UMS Console

When the UMS Console is included, the RAM and disk space requirements are increased as follows:

  • At least 3 GB of RAM
  • At least 1 GB of free disk space

With Embedded Database

When the embedded database is included, the RAM and disk space requirements are increased as follows:

  • At least 2 GB of free disk space

UMS with UMS Console and Embedded Database

When both the UMS Console and the embedded database are included, the RAM and disk space requirements are increased as follows:

  • At least 8 GB of RAM
  • At least 5 GB of free disk space

Only UMS Console

  • At least 3 GB of RAM
  • At least 1 GB 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.


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.


The UMS Server and Load Balancer for High Availability (HA) must be in the same IP network. NAT or proxies must not be between the UMS Server and Load Balancer because they can influence communication between the components.


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