LMS (4.1) server minimum requirements ??

Hello, in LMS (4.1) installing guide, table 'Software and Hardware Requirements for Soft Appliance', it is stated

Memory and CPURequirement: • 4 GB, 2 virtual CPU (< = 500 devices)

Host CPU Core clock speed: •  Minimum 2.26 GHz

Minimum Virtual CPU Reservations: Number of recommended virtual CPUs x 2.26 GHz: • 4520 MHz (< = 500 devices)

I have HP server with 6 core CPU 2.0GHz - does it mean it does not meet the minimum system requirements (2.26Ghz)? Will I be able to go pass the installation?

Cisco Employee

That 2.26Ghz is for the host which would reside on the Virtual machine.

The HP server you have, is if a virtual server, it should be able to provide you a host with accelerated cpu cycles.

That said, even if you want to install on that server with 2Ghz it should give a warning that perfomence may be degraded, but you should be able to install LMS 4.1 on it.


-Thanks Vinod **Rating Encourages contributors, and its really free. **

Great Vinod, thank you for your prompt answer! Exactly, I would use VMware ESX on that HP server - so you think it will pass the installation? What do you mean by 'should be able to provide you a host with accelerated cpu cycles' ? To 'overclock' CPU in VM? Is it possible to do that?


Here are the published prerequisites for installing 4.2

The following processors are supported on a Windows system:

Intel processors

Intel Xeon processor

Intel Core Duo processor T2600 - T2300

Quad Core Intel Xeon

Intel-VT processors (VMware Optimized hardware)

Intel Xeon processor 5400 series

Intel Xeon processor 5300 series

Intel Xeon processor 7300 series

Intel Xeon processor 5500 series

Intel Xeon processor 5600 series

AMD processors

AMD Opteron Processor

AMD Athlon 64 FX Processor

AMD Athlon 64 X2


Note Minimum processor speed must be 2.33 Ghz or higher (below)

Dual-Core AMD Opteron Processor

AMD Opteron Processor

AMD Athlon 64 FX Processor

AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 Dual-Core

The server requirements on VMware servers remains the same as the server requirements on Windows systems.

However, the following hardware are optimized to run in virtualized environment:

Intel-VT processors

Intel® vPro™ processor technology

Intel® Xeon® processor 5000 sequence

Intel Xeon processor 7000 sequence
