Requirements for the VM:

If you want to invite me to a beer for my work, just make a donation via

Getting started:
Copy the folder IGEL UMS Appliance 3.x to your Hyper-V VM folder.
Import the VM via the Hyper-V console and set the Network Card to the Network you want to connect to.
Start the VM, by default the VM will pick up a DHCP address. If you want to use a static IP you can
configure this in the DHCP Server by assigning a IP to the VM's MAC-ID (see below).
After the vm is started open the VM console and login to the System with the username igel (credentials
see below. Now you can assign also a static IP (Network setup is on the right in the top menu).
On the desktop you can see two links to open the UMS console or administrator tool.

If you're using Oracle's Virtual Box you can open the UMS Appliance 2.9.vbox which can be found in the archive,
important: After you double click this file it will be open with Virtual Box but before you you start it you have to point the HDD to the VHD File coming with this appliance->Otherwise it will not load the VHD and you can not boot the appliance at all.

Note: I've setup default directory rules, new clients will directly moved to the device folder. You can
motify this of course depending on your needs.
