Vigilo OSS Virtual Appliance (VA) Installation¶
Vigilo is now available as a virtual appliance for those who want to quickly test it without having to deal with the whole installation process.
The appliance is primarily intended for evaluation purposes and can be used to monitor small information systems (< 100 hosts).
- Vigilo (OSS / Community Edition)
- A web interface for easy configuration based on GLPI
- A knowledge base based on Dokuwiki

Downloading the Virtual Appliance¶
First, you must download the virtual appliance from this address.
Optionally, on Linux, you may check the downloaded file for corruption against the sha256sum.txt file using the
sha256sum command-line tool:
sha256sum --check sha256sum.txt
Next, extract the archive using your favorite manager.
We recommend using 7-zip.
Now, load the description file (
Vigilo-VA-OSS-4.1.0.ovf) into your virtual machine manager.
Depending on your installation, you may need to change the configuration of the VA's network interface from NAT to bridged inside your virtual machine manager to receive an IP address.
Once the VA is fully booted, log into the VA through your virtual machine manager using the
vigilo login and password.
vigilo-menu command allows you to configure various aspects of the virtual machine, like the default keyboard layout, date/time synchronization, network settings, and so on. It also contains commands to perform various periodic administrative tasks.
By default, the virtual appliance will try to retrieve an IP address using the DHCP protocol. If you'd rather use a static address, navigate to
System configuration >
Network configuration, then follow the on-screen instructions to reconfigure the network interface.
