Overview

In addition to traditional on-premises deployment, Netwrix Auditor now offers new deployment options that can speed time-to-value by getting you up and running in less than 15 minutes. The following additional deployment options are available:

  • Virtual appliance—If you run a Microsoft Hyper-V or VMware vSphere, you can deploy Netwrix Auditor as a virtual appliance. Virtual appliance is a VM image file with installed Netwrix Auditor and enabled auto-audit (User Activity monitoring for localhost). The following configuration options are available:

    • Generalized Windows Server 2012 R2, 180-day evaluation version, and Microsoft SQL Server 2014 Express with native Reporting Services installed.
    • Generalized Windows Server 2016, 180-day evaluation version, and Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Express with native Reporting Services installed.

    Navigate to the Netwrix website at https://www.netwrix.com/virtual_appliances.html and start the Virtual Appliance Download Manager.

    NOTE: Consider Microsoft limits for evaluation versions of Windows Server 2012 R2 and 2016. You have 10 days to complete online activation, otherwise your Windows evaluation license expires and Netwrix Auditor virtual appliance will shut down every hour. Provide a valid license for Windows Server or ensure Internet connection to connect to Microsoft Licensing Activation Center and register your license. Refer to Microsoft article for more information: Evaluation Versions and Upgrade Options for Windows Server 2012.

    Furthermore, you can register you license by phone. See Microsoft Licensing Activation Centers worldwide telephone numbers for more information.
