For a Windows system, you need to obtain a Windows-compatible MD5-based checksum utility from the Web and follow its usage instructions.
Continue with Deploying Filr.
Download the .zip file to your VMware virtual machine location.
Extract the .zip file until you have a folder containing three files with .mf, .ovf, and .vmdk extensions.
On VMware workstation, open the .ovf file.
To see the .ovf file listed, you might have to change the filter (by the File name field) to display all image files.
Change the VM name as shown, then click.
Filr is imported.

A Small Deployment has all three Filr services (Filr, Search, and MySQL) running on the same appliance.
Specify and confirm novellfilr as the root user password, then click .
Wait until the appliance restarts, then continue with Adjusting the Java Heap Size.
By default the Java Heap Size is set to 4 GB. However, you have reduced the default memory (RAM) allocation for the appliance to 4 GB, so the heap size must also be set lower.
If needed, log in to the appliance management console again (https://192.168.1.110:9443) and click theicon.
Change the 2g, then click .to
As a general rule, the heap size should be about 2 GB less than the total RAM assigned to the virtual appliance.
In the left panel, click.
After the appliance reconfigures, continue with Securing LDAP Synchronization between the Filr VA and the OES Server.
Generate a root certificate for the eDirectory tree:
