The Data Sheet for Extreme Control does not list any resource requirements for the VM, only that it is compatible with Hyper-V and VMware.  The product page specifications tab is improperly formatted, and is virtually unreadable - I've tried in IE & Chrome

The Data Sheet for Extreme Management Center does not list any resource requirements either, and the product page (http://www.extremenetworks.com/product/management-center/ - specifications tab) gives incorrect information regarding the resources - that caused a HUGE issue at a customer site during an install, and was pointed out to GTAC 3 weeks ago but still not fixed!

So, what are the necessary resources needed for Extreme Control for v7 & v8, and can we get this information put back into the Data Sheets?

Thanks,

Bill

Hello Bill, 

Take a look at the following Knowledge Solution:  
https://gtacknowledge.extremenetworks.com/articles/How_To/Considerations-for-upgradingExtreme-Manage...

The release notes should contain the sizing information as well. I will forward this request to our documentation team to see if we can get something updated in the datasheets.

I saw that, but of course after the install had begun, and after I gave the customer the specs for what resources were needed for NMS, and after they freaked out over the prospect of suddenly needing 64Gig of RAM and 2TB of HD space...

However, still no specs for NAC VM...

Thanks!  It is prevalent in the v8 release notes, but not so much in the v7 notes.  changing my search from extreme control to access control helped...

Are the powers that be done making name changes????
