VMWare OVA template-based installation
MiaRec OVA template is a pre-installed virtual machine with operating system (Centos 7.3 64-bit) and MiaRec call recording software.
This OVF template is ideal solution for trial. It is easy to import it into VMWare ESX/ESXi or VMWare Workstation.
1. Request URL to OVA template

From the menu select File -> Deploy OVF Template...
Inside the opened dialog enter the URL to OVA file, which you received from the MiaRec representative.

7. Multi-tenant mode [optional]

8. Configure network
By default, the MiaRec OVA template is configured with DHCP. For testing purposes, you can keep using DHCP-based network configuration. For a production environment, we recommend to configure static ip-address as described below.
Assign static ip-address (if not using DHCP)
By default MiaRec virtual machine is configured to obtain own ip-address from DHCP server. If you would like to use static ip-address for MiaRec VM, then edit file
BOOTPROTO=none and add the following lines to this file:
IPADDR=x.x.x.x GATEWAY=y.y.y.y DNS1=188.8.131.52 DNS2=184.108.40.206
Replace x.x.x.x and y.y.y.y with desired machine ip-address and gateway.
Restart network interface:
service network restart
Test the network connection:
Update /etc/hostname and /etc/hosts
If you would like to access MiaRec web-portal via dns name rarther than ip-address, then edit files
127.0.0.1 miarec.example.com localhost
service network restart
Restart MiaRec recorder service
If the network configuration is updated, then you need to restart miarec recorder service:
service miarec restart
