Once the package has been extracted, open the Readme (VHD).docx for detailed instructions on how to get started with K2 Core for your selected virtualization platform.  The latest version of these files have also been provided with this article: see the links to the right.

Once the image is downloaded and extracted, it can be hosted in a virtualization infrastructure, or on machines that meet the minimum requirements set out below. It is the responsibility of the organization to ensure that machines meet the prerequisites, or for the organization to arrange a suitable virtualization platform where the virtual servers can be hosted and accessed.

The virtual environment runs a 64-bit server operating system and multiple server applications such as Microsoft Exchange, SharePoint 2013, CRM, SQL server, Active Directory, K2 Server and others, and therefore has a substantial memory footprint. The following prerequisites apply if you wish to run the downloaded virtual image:

  • 64-bit host operating system (such as Windows Server 2012 R2 or Windows 8.1 64-bit)
  • Virtualization software capable of running the Windows Server 2012 R2 64-bit operating system (such as Microsoft Hyper-V or Oracle VirtualBox for the .VHD image)
  • 40GB free disc space to download the image .rar file
  • 100GB free disc space to hold the extracted image files
  • 12GB of RAM minimum, 16GB or more recommended
  • A mouse is recommended. Touchpads will work but can be restrictive
