Installing a Jamf Infrastructure Manager Instance

Jamf Infrastructure Manager instances can be installed on Linux and Windows. When you install an Infrastructure Manager instance, it is enrolled with the Jamf Software Server (JSS). You can install as many instances as your organization requires.

Note: You can only install one Infrastructure Manager instance per computer.

After you install an Infrastructure Manager instance, you can view the services installed on each instance using the JSS.

Requirements

The Jamf Infrastructure Manager Installer requires a computer with the following:

  • One of the following operating systems:

    • Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Server (64-bit) or Ubuntu 16.04 LTS Server (64-bit)

    • Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7.0, 7.1, or 7.2

    • Windows Server 2008 R2 (64-bit), Windows Server 2012 (64-bit), or Windows Server 2012 R2 (64-bit)

  • A 64-bit capable Intel processor

  • 300 MB of disk space available

  • Java 1.8 (For more information, see the Installing Java and MySQL Knowledge Base article.)

On the JSS, the built-in CA or a trusted third-party CA must be configured.
