UVMSQL Appliance Requirements

Prerequisites

The BeyondTrust UVMSQL Appliance requires the following at a minimum:

  • Two available power outlets
  • A high-speed network connection
  • A network router or switch
  • A unique, static IPv4 address for the BeyondTrust UVMSQL Appliance
  • A private DNS A-record resolving to the static IP of your UVMSQL Appliance.
  • An SSL web server certificate, intermediate SSL certificates, and SSL root, OR a self-signed certificate.

Preliminary Steps

You should take several steps before the BeyondTrust hardware is delivered and installed:

  1. Allocate the necessary rack space for the UVMSQL Appliance. Ensure the space has the necessary power and network access. The rack space required is 1U.
  2. Determine a machine name (15 characters or less) and reserve a static IP address for each UVMSQL Appliance on the network.

 

Once you have named your UVMSQL Appliance, it cannot be renamed. If at any point you need to rename the appliance, you must either re-image (if it is a physical appliance) or re-deploy (if it is a virtual appliance) the image.

  1. Identify the domain that you plan to join the UVMSQL Appliances to for the purpose of clustering.
  2. Identify or create Domain Administrator credentials to be used during the cluster configuration process.
  3. Identify the organizational unit (OU) to which the UVMSQL Appliances will belong. This OU is required to have group policy inheritance blocked.
  4. Identify or create the Group Managed Service Account that will be used for the ongoing operation of the cluster.
  5. Allocate a name and static IP address for the cluster that will be created with the UVMSQL Appliances.
  6. Allocate a name and static IP address for the availability group listener.
