You must install View Transfer Server as a Windows application in a virtual machine that meets specific requirements.

The virtual machine that hosts View Transfer Server must meet several requirements regarding network connectivity:

It must be managed by the same vCenter Server instance as the local desktops that it will manage.

It does not have to be part of a domain.

It must use a static IP address.

Caution

You must configure the virtual machine that hosts View Transfer Server with an LSI Logic Parallel SCSI controller. You cannot use a SAS or VMware paravirtual controller.

On Windows Server 2008 virtual machines, the LSI Logic SAS controller is selected by default. You must change this selection to an LSI Logic Parallel controller before you install the operating system.

The View Transfer Server software cannot coexist on the same virtual machine with any other View Manager software component, including View Connection Server.

You can install multiple View Transfer Server instances for high availability and scalability.
