Before you install the Cisco MediaSense software in any server, you must address the following requirements:
+
<br>
-
*Only Cisco MediaSense must be running on this VM host. No other product can be installed on this server.
+
|-
-
*If you are performing a fresh install of Cisco MediaSense in any deployment, be sure to verify that the virtual machine is also fresh (no previously-installed OS is present in the VM).
+
| 7vCPU Config<br>[[#Notes_on_7_vCPU_VM_configuration|See notes]]
-
*On the C210 M1/M2 servers, MediaSense supports higher disk count and size than the disk count and size that is supported by the Tested Reference Configurations for the C210 M1/M2 servers, without requiring specs-based virtualization.

{{note| Cisco MediaSense has stringent requirements for the media disk size for any deployment. See the [http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps11389/products_implementation_design_guides_list.html Solution Reference Network Design for Cisco MediaSense, Release 8.5(3)] for more information.}}
+
The 2 vCPU VM configuration can be used for a Primary or a Secondary Cisco MediaSense node. <br> Expansion nodes are not supported with this configuration.
 +
This configuration is available for deployment on the UCS-E servers. Look for details here [[Cisco_MediaSense_on_UCSE|Cisco_MediaSense_on_UCSE]]
-
Up to 60 terabytes of media storage is supported per cluster, divided into up to six 2TB virtual disks in each of five servers. This assumes that all nodes are B-series servers, for which Cisco MediaSense supports SAN storage. C-series servers, for which only direct attached drives are currently supported, are limited to two 2TB media storage partitions each. Also, no single media partition may be smaller than 200GB.

== Cisco MediaSense, Release 8.5(4)  ==
+
Expansion Nodes are not supported with this virtual machine configuration.  
-
In addition to approved UCS servers, Cisco MediaSense 8.5(4) can also be installed on a Services Ready Engine (SRE) module inside a router. An SRE module is a router blade that has its own processors, storage, network interfaces, and memory. Support for SRE requires SRE v2.0 software. For more information about approved SRE models, see the [http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps11389/products_implementation_design_guides_list.html Solution Reference Network Design for Cisco MediaSense, Release 8.5(4)].<br>
