Deploying Cisco ISE on VMware Workstation

You need to have an ISO image of Cisco ISE before you start. I am using ISE 2.0 on VMware Workstation.

Start from File > New Virtual Machine
Select Typical & hit Next..
Select I will install the OS later & hit Next..
Select Linux 7 - 64bit..
Give a Name & the Location and & hit Next..
Give the disk size to be about 250GBs and select store virtual disk as a single file & hit Next..
Now go to Customize Hardware..

Memory should be more than 4 GB..
Give number of processors to 2 and number of cores per processor to 2..
On CD/DVD; use ISO image > give location and tick Connect at power on..

Before Finish, the settings will be somewhat similar to this capture.

Now you can power up the VM..

The 1st dialog box appear will be like the following..

You can give 1 and hit Enter..

Now it will show an error message indicating "unsupported hardware detected"
Just hit Enter for Ok.
After a long auto installation process it will reboot and prompt a new dialog box like the following.

Type "setup" as the login name & it will direct you to a setup wizard..

After giving your settings to wizard, it will continue with the installation and reboot..

Now if your given IP is reachable, you can log in to ISE via a web browser. The best supporting web browser for ISE 1.2 will be Firefox..
