6.2 Virtualizing the ZENworks Database Server

Micro Focus does not recommend virtualization of the ZENworks Database server. However, if you do, you should ensure that you follow the database vendor's best practice. In addition, you should use a dedicated server for the ZENworks database to ensure that the available resources for the database are known and are under control. Placing the database on a server with other virtual machines can lead to performance degradation, which in turn can affect other aspects of ZENworks, from the performance of the ZENworks Control Center to the responsiveness of ZENworks on managed devices.
