Kaseya and VM

  • We are at a point where we will be building a new dedicated Kaseya Server. I would like to create Windows 2003 VM on this box for portability and ease of migration. What is Kaseya's official position on this and are any guidelines published?

  • Not sure of the official word on it, but just fyi we've had our Kaseya server in a VM for the last 2 years, firstly on Virtual Server 2005 then migrated to HyperV. Never had one problem and as you say it makes moving it around very easy.

  • We've also been running Kaseya in HyperV since October of last year without any real issues. I haven't heard anything from Kaseya on their official stance, but it's worked fine for us. Just make sure you have a decent disk subsystem because Kaseya does hit the drives pretty hard if you start to get a bunch of agents out there, especially during maintenance windows.

  • Hey Guys, give me an idea on the count of agents you have in use on your Hyper-v server, and how many BUDR & KES installs as well. I'd like to see how high you've scaled it and kept performance good.

  • I would also be keen to see those figures as we are planning an internal upgrade, and I am very tempted to keep our Kserver on its own physical, rather than go virtual.

    If you could pass on details of the systems that would be great
