5.0 Running QuickFinder Server in a Virtualized Environment

QuickFinder Server runs in a virtualized environment just as it does on a physical Novell Open Enterprise 11 server, and requires no special configuration or other changes. However, if you want to run QuickFinder within a virtual machine and intend to index large amounts of data, you need to assign at least 2 GB of memory to the virtual machine.

To get started with virtualization, see Introduction to Xen Virtualization in the Virtualization with Xen guide.

To get started with third-party virtualization platforms, such as Hyper-V from Microsoft and the different VMware product offerings, refer to the documentation for the product you are using.
